Free Services for Blind & Visually Impaired Adults

Braille Institute provides on-site programs and services for adults at regional and neighborhood centers, as well as community programs at outreach locations throughout Southern California. Classes, workshops and services are also offered  remotely online, and over-the-phone which you can participate in from the comfort of your home.

We offer a wide range of educational, social, and recreational classes and workshops for adults, geared toward living well with low vision.

Free Low Vision Consultations are available to help our clients make the most of their remaining vision. Find out how through mainstream technology and adaptive devices such as magnifiers and CCTVs day-to-day life can be made easier.

Each center offers unique class schedules and events for their community. Find our location nearest you for upcoming classes and workshops.
