Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) Offers Braille Instruction Information to Families

STEP has received multiple calls from families regarding their requests for Braille instruction being denied by their district. This memo from the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is a powerful tool that families can use at their IEP meetings where there is discussion of learning Braille for a student who is blind or visually impaired, including those students whose prognosis is for vision loss that will occur in future years.

We hope this information will be helpful in clarifying the application of the IDEA requirements regarding Braille instruction for children who are blind or visually impaired.
