International World Braille Day!
International World Braille Day is celebrated yearly in recognition of the birth of Louis Braille, born on January 4th, 1809. World Braille Day was created in 2019 by the United Nations General Assembly and serves as the commencement event for Braille Literacy Month, an event throughout January that aims to raise awareness about the importance of braille and braille literacy.
While braille is most frequently recognized as a reading medium for individuals who are totally blind, many individuals benefit from braille and the access it provides. This includes individuals with visual impairments, severe disabilities, and individuals with dual sensory loss.
