The Lighthouse for the Blind offers instructional training for sighted and blind people in reading and typing Braille. For the blind clients, the need to read and type Braille is a matter of basic communication survival.
Special training is required to master typing on a Braille typewriter.
Braille classes are provided to sighted teachers who will create lesson plans for blind children so that they can be included in classes with the rest of the children of their age. These teachers often focus only on training blind children to read and type Braille so that they can participate in classroom learning.
