Subject: [Pibe-division] Questions about Braille instruction

I am a beginning Braille teacher.  I was wondering where can I find information about time line for braille instruction?  By the end of kindergarten, what should the a student be expected to have covered?

A long journey begins with one step
There is a literacy crisis in America.
Only 10% of children who are blind are 
taught to read Braille.
