Attend NFB BELLĀ® Academy In-Home Edition!

The National Federation of the Blind is offering three virtual programs of the NFB BELL Academy this summer to prepare blind and low-vision children to grow into confident and independent blind people by enhancing their education. Options are available for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students.

Take advantage of this opportunity for your child to connect with blind role models and more by applying for one of the following sessions:

  • Session 1 – June 7-18, 2021
  • Session 2 – July 19-30, 2021
  • Session 3 – August 9-20, 2021

Each registered student will receive the materials to complete all lessons alongside their parent/guardian via mail. Each day during the two-week session, there will be two opportunities to connect via web or phone with an experienced teacher. This gives students and families the chance to ask questions and get to know each other.
