Excellence without Excuses

In the Spotlight:
Congratulations JJ on his 3rd place finish in the Braille Challenge!

What is the Braille Challenge?

The Braille Challenge® is is an academic competition intended to motivate blind students to improve their braille and literacy skills. Students test their skills in reading comprehension, Braille speed and accuracy, proofreading, spelling and reading tactile charts and graphs.  More than 500 students from first through twelfth grades participated in the Preliminary Round last year.  The top-scoring 65 came to Los Angeles in June for the Final Round of two days of competition and prizes, camaraderie and fun! Parents are encouraged to accompany their child and TVI to the Braille Challenge®.
