    The BrailleDoodle is an inexpensive B-SMArt device for Braille learning and a tactile – Science, Math, and Art with a surface that refreshes repeatedly. It allows someone to write and create and feel as they go.

    Alt text- The B-SMArt device is an acronym for braille science math and art. In the acronym, the B and S and M and A are all bold faces and caps but the rt and little letters. Next to the Acronym reads For braille learning and tactile science, math, and court, with the B, the S, the M and the A capitalized and boldfaced and the rt in art is just boldfaced.

    Our Mission

      1. Focus on Braille literacy and Tactile – Science, Math, & Art. 

      2. Distribute The BrailleDoodle, a simple, affordable solution to empower children to reach their full potential.

      3. Donate thousands of free BrailleDoodles to blind children who may not be able to afford them.

    The braille learning side

              The BrailleDoodle has an array of hundreds of holes on the doodle side. Each hole contains a smooth metal ball that can be pulled to the surface by a magnetic stylus. When the user erases by simply pushing the balls back down.

              The braille side of the BrailleDoodle is a place for learning and practicing braille. On this side, the top section contains examples and practice spaces for every letter, some symbols, and sight words. Unlike other devices, below are lines of 20 braille cells to practice words and sentences. This is the way one learns to read, not one letter at a time!

        More specialized covers/stencils allow students to learn Math braille, contractions, shapes, print letters, graphs, art, even braille in different languages!

    Don’t Delay

      There is A Crisis in the Blind Community!

      A 10% literacy rate* in rural areas is UNACCEPTABLE
      and there is a direct correlation to these disturbing statistics:
