    “Would love this! Sadly, I am struggling to get braille instruction for my child. I think this would help me teach him. The BrailleDoodle can’t come out fast enough!” – Tammy Simpson M., Parent of Nathan, age 10

    Description

    The BrailleDoodle is an inexpensive but high-quality device that will help students learn braille, even when remote learning. 

    Also, it will also allow someone to make drawings and FEEL AS THEY DRAW.

    The BrailleDoodle laptop-sized device with an array of hundreds of holes that cover the surface. Each hole contains a smooth metal ball that could be pulled to the surface by a magnetic stylus. The user erases a creation by pushing the pin back down with a satisfying “pop.”

    More specialized stencils will allow students to learn Nemeth/Math, contractions, shapes, print letters, simple drawings, graphs even braille in different languages!

    People are Saying

    Of the 30% who are employed, 85% know braille.

    Yet, more than 90% of children, who need it, are NOT learning braille! 

    Why is that?
