Braille Institute of America, Inc.

The Braille Institute, founded 1919, provides an environment of hope and encouragement for people who are blind and visually impaired through integrated educational, social and recreational programs and services. Generous donors and dedicated efforts by more than 5,200 volunteers enable staff to provide training, programs and services without charge.

  • Children Development - We offer in-home programs for parents of blind infants and toddlers and help to main stream blind children (up to age 5) in community preschools.
  • Youth and Career Services - We help foster self-confidence and independence in children and young adults, ages 6-30. This includes job counseling and referrals.
  • Counseling and Support Services - Our counselors and support services help advise and assist with the adjustment of vision loss.
  • Classes - We offer more than 200 classes in adaptation to blindness and attaining independence, as well as many recreational subjects.
  • Options for Low Vision - Our free Low Vision Rehabilitation consultations provide tools for making the most of remaining vision.
  • Community Outreach: "Classes Near You" - For those who can’t come to a regional center, many classes are offered outside our centers throughout Southern California.
  • Our mobile solutions vehicles travel throughout Southern California to bring our services to you.
  • Vistas - Our retail store has many adaptive items.
