Registration for 2011 is now open!

The NFB Braille Reading Pals Club is an early 
literacy program that encourages parents to read 
daily with their blind or low-vision child (ages infant to seven).

Sponsored in part by the National Organization of 
Parents of Blind Children (NOPBC) and the 
American Action Fund for Blind Children and Adults (AAF)

Participating club members will receive:

• A print-Braille book and a plush reading pal

• Monthly parent e-newsletter promoting tips for early Braille literacy

• Quarterly Braille activity sheets for young children

• Braille birthday cards for child participants

• Access to a network of resources devoted to 
serving parents of blind children

Mission of the Program:

• Introduce young children and their families to Braille

• Provide parents literacy strategies to use with their children

• Direct parents to essential resources for 
promoting success for their young blind children

• Help parents promote early literacy skills, a 
love of reading, and a positive attitude about 
Braille through daily reading with their blind children
