Enhance your Braille and nonvisual skills with us!

The National Federation of the Blind’s Braille Enrichment Literacy and Learning (BELL) ® Academy helps blind and low-vision children, develop the literacy and independent-living 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.
