For schools that won’t be reopening this fall, the LEGO Foundation is sending the braille bricks to districts where blind or visually impaired students are registered in the hopes that teachers or administrators can send them to students’ homes.
While teachers continue to navigate uncharted territory, “They have some options,” an APH spokesperson told CNN Business. “They could send a kit to students at home and do activities over Zoom or a similar platform. If they have in-person classes, they could supply each student with their own kit, for now.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to be working with LEGO to distribute an incredible tool to help introduce students to braille,” APH President Craig Meador said. “Reading braille means literacy that connects students to lifelong learning and opportunity.”
