Service Details

Description

Classes where people who know little or no English can learn to speak English while also learning to read and write in Braille.


Students receive up to eight hours a week in small group instruction.


Many students who have mastered some basic English terms choose to take other classes, such as cane travel and computers, alongside students enrolled in the comprehensive program. This helps them to increase their independence, develop a positive attitude toward blindness, and practice their English with fluent speakers.
