Braille Bricks: Building Blocks Teaching Literacy to the Blind Community

Nava Silton

Legos are great. Kids of all ages love them, they are relatively cheap and can be played in groups or on one’s own. In addition, Legos inspire the use of creativity and imagination. The organization Dorina Nowill Foundation for the Blind builds off the popularity of Legos to create a toy that not only is fun, but additionally can help teach kids with visual impairments how to read and write. Braille Bricks are sets of building blocks that have been tweaked to represent the complete braille alphabet. The goal of Braille Bricks is to encourage both literacy and inclusion among the blind community. Currently, the company is a grassroots project, but people can help Braille Bricks to become a global product, helping thousands of children across the world, by using hashtag #BrailleBricksForAll.
