DID YOU KNOW?
* The NCLB is the only test that is specifically designed for
teachers and aids who work with blind children and adults. All other
national certifications are intended for transcribers who must be
expert in both the braille code and formatting.
* Representatives from the American Council of the Blind, the
American Foundation for the Blind, the Association for Education and
Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired, the Blinded
Veterans Association, the Canadian Council of the Blind, the Canadian
National Institute for the Blind, the National Federation of the
Blind, and The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically
Handicapped all came together to find a way that teachers working
with the blind can unequivocally demonstrate their knowledge of
braille and the NCLB was the result.
* The NCLB test was originally maintained and administered by The
National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped
before the national Blindness Professional Certification Board
(NBPCB) assumed responsibility for it.
* The additional NCLB certification will ensure employers, school
administrators, colleagues, consumers, families, and other
professionals that you possess proficient braille knowledge and
skills to meet your professional responsibilities.
* You can go to <http://www.nbpcb.org/nclb>www.nbpcb.org/nclb for
information on the material covered by the NCLB, a sample test, study
materials, description of common errors, accommodations, information
on the reference materials you can use on the test, costs including
special rates for students, and much more!
