A charity has made a raft of online resources available to encourage schools and organisations to raise awareness of the importance of braille
Royal Blind has launched the online support ahead of National Braille Week (7-13 October) to help run events in schools, provide worksheets, powerpoint presentations as well as games and puzzles.
Other resources include online videos and advice specifically for teachers of a visually impaired pupil.
The charity has also provided a guide on website and apps that can help support the week of activity and raise awareness of the importance of Braille in people’s lives.
