The National Federation of the Blind is committed to ensuring quality education for blind students, and to providing activities and lessons that are fun and educational for blind children and their families. When virtual education is necessary or encouraged, we want blind students to be able to continue learning alongside their sighted peers.

Everyone has a different journey when it comes to reading. Brittany’s journey began with her father. Every night the two would take turns reading a page out of a book. My journey began with my TVI in elementary school. She required every student to read a book switching back and forth from listening to a book on tape or reading a book in Braille.
The National Federation of the Blind and the country’s premier training centers for the blind offer a variety of summer programs for blind and low-vision children and young adults that build blindness skills and encourage independence.
The National Federation of the Blind's extensive legal program has helped advance disability rights case law under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, creating more equitable workplaces, classrooms, and communities for blind Americans.
