Upcoming In-Person Anaheim Center Workshops

Braille Institute’s Youth Program aims to create a solid foundation among school-age youth (ages 7 to 19) by working with families and educators through virtual and in-person sessions led by the Youth Team. The Youth Program actively helps develop independent young adults through self-advocacy, determination, and peer support through our curriculum inspired by the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC). The nine areas of the Expanded Core Curriculum include:

  • Assistive Technology
  • Career Education
  • Compensatory Skills
  • Independent Living Skills
  • Orientation and Mobility
  • Self-Determination
  • Sensory Efficiency
  • Social Interaction Skills

Fall Programming (September – December 2022)

The Youth Team has led a successful virtual program for almost two years. This fall, we’re excited to present a Hybrid Program emphasizing Independent Living Skills, Recreation and Leisure activities, and College Preparation. This semester we are offering a Hybrid Choir Program and virtual Music 101 sessions.
