Braille Bites

Bite-sized recipes for big fun and early skill development in
braille reading and writing!

Braille Bites is a series of videos and resource guides for anyone who is supporting blind and low vision learners to explore and gather information about their worlds using the sense of touch. Each episode is a short video presented in the style of a cooking show with each activity written as a recipe! Videos and resource materials from our first season are posted below, as well as how you can connect with us on social media via Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok.
