The guiding purposes of National Braille Press are to promote the literacy of blind children through braille and to provide access to information that empowers blind people to actively engage in work, family, and community affairs.
Spending time doing everyday activities is a great opportunity to talk about color with your child. Watch how Lisamaria Martinez makes kitchen time with her son a learning experience about colors.
