To increase Braille literacy and to increase access to and the availability of meaningful and quality Braille materials, the Ohio State School for the
Blind’s Center for Instructional Supports and Accessible Materials (CISAM) as part of the Braille Excellence for Students and Teachers Grant (BEST) is
sponsoring free Braille weekend workshops for students in grades 7-12 who are blind or visually impaired and are current Braille users. The Braille Weekend
Workshop series consists of three Saturday workshops at the Ohio State School for the Blind, 5220 N. High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43214: February 8, 2014;
March 8, 2014, and April 5, 2014. The workshops will start at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at 3:00 p.m. Instruction will be provided by OSSB teachers Ceil Peirano
and Robin Finley. Activities will include Music Reviews, Favorite Artists, Sharing Lyrics & Playlists, and a Pizza Party. Parents must make transportation
arrangements for each participant.
