Classes

We are currently offering online workshops and classes and virtual sessions, while Braille Institute centers remain temporarily closed due to COVID-19. Once you register, you then participate by video or phone within the comfort and safety of your home. Like all of our programs and services, Braille’s remote service offerings are free of charge. Learn how Braille’s remote classes, workshops and services work, here.

  • Online Winter Classes & Virtual Sessions: For classes, or a “live” session with a Braille Institute instructor or consultant by video or phone call, call 1-800-BRAILLE to schedule.

We will assess resuming in-person classes and services at our physical centers next year by continually monitoring state and county COVID-19 orders. Watch for updates on our website and social media channels.
