Program Overview

Braille is not a fading form of communication. It is not only an
essential means of writing and reading, but is one of the primary skills that is essential to successful education and employability.

The LightHouse is not only dedicated to teaching Braille, but also supports many businesses, schools and community agencies in ensuring that they have and maintain Braille access. Braille is everywhere in public venues, elevators, ATM's, restaurants and more, it is a tactile reading and writing system that most anyone can learn and the LightHouse teaches every day of the week.

Adult students of all ages can benefit from learning Braille for simple label writing and labeling and playing cards with friends and family, to learning contracted braille for notetaking and reading text books or documents or learning refreshable displays in tandem with computer use or smartphones.
