Learning braille is crucial for blind and visually impaired children as it allows them to develop a variety of essential life skills ensuring they experience intellectual freedom, independence and equal access to education and work. They often struggle at school when it comes to coding concepts in maths, science and computing. The LEGO Braille Bricks concept can help them learn these skills. Play nurtures and develops the breadth of skills that enable us to be powerful agents of our own lives and positive contributors to our communities. The LEGO Braille Bricks concept thus presents a groundbreaking and inclusive opportunity to teach blind, visually impaired and sighted children alongside each other by offering a fun and playful way to engage, interact and learn together.
