OUR MISSION

At Valley Center for the Blind we join together in a spirit of dedication to assist persons who are blind and visually impaired in experiencing a more independent and opportunity filled life.

There is no reason to set aside the love of reading! At Valley Center for the Blind we encourage our clients to pursue the challenging but rewarding opportunity to learn braille. Braille is a written language in which characters are represented by a pattern of raised dots read by touch. Clients first learn Grade 1 Braille which is a simplified version useful for labeling and reading basic text. Grade 2 Braille is more advanced and allows the user to more efficiently write notes and read text. Learning braille is incredibly useful in taking steps towards independence for those with vision loss.
