2010 NFB BELL Program

Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning

Is your state looking for an exciting project 
that will help promote Braille literacy?  Are 
there children in your state who do not receive 
enough Braille instruction?  We have a project 
for you! After a successful pilot of the NFB BELL 
Program in two states in 2009, the NFB Jernigan 
Institute is beginning work on the 2010 NFB BELL 
Programs.  The NFB BELL Program is designed to 
provide two weeks of intense Braille instruction 
through fun interactive activities to low vision 
students­who generally do not receive Braille 
instruction due to their residual vision.

Are you interested in learning more about this 
exciting new program and how to bring the NFB 
BELL Program and all of the accompanying 
opportunities to blind children in your 
state?  Please join the NFB Jernigan Institute’s 
Education Team for one of the following two informational conference calls.

Conference Call Information:
October 21 at 8:30 PM EDT
October 22 at 8:30 PM EDT.
Call in Number: (800) 264-8432
Code: 714549

Following the information sessions, applications 
will be available online for interested states to 
complete.  Once the applications have been 
reviewed, three new states will be selected to 
host the 2010 NFB BELL Program.  If you are 
unable to attend one of the information sessions 
or desire additional information in the interim 
please contact Natalie Shaheen (410-659-9314, 
extension 2293,
