Join the NFB of Texas for our NFB BELL Academy program in Tyler, June 17-21 from 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m., daily. In addition to Braille crafts, games, and other engaging projects, children will learn vital independent living skills, interact with blind adult mentors, and enjoy field trips to sites related to the NFB BELL Academy curriculum. Lunch will be provided. A menu will be sent out prior to the program. Registration is 150 dollars per student.

If you have a blind children’s program counselor, this is an excellent opportunity to connect with them for funding. Scholarships are also available from the NFB of Texas. Families will need to arrange transportation to and from the program each day. For more information or additional questions please contact Emily Gibbs.
