Enhance your Braille and nonvisual skills with us!

The NFB BELL Academy helps blind and low-vision children, ages four through twelve, develop the literacy skills that will empower them to achieve their academic goals and live the lives they want. We provide opportunities for students to imagine, create, and touch their future and dreams; by not only raising expectations through Braille instruction, but by nurturing their development of tactile arts and graphics. To learn more about the NFB BELL Academy and to apply, visit www.nfb.org/bell-academy. Applications for the 2022 BELL Academy are available until June 1, 2022.
