Everything in the braille music course came together for an integral learning experience that was wonderful.

Braille Courses

Reading and writing braille has been a priority for The Hadley School for the Blind since its founding in 1920. To this day, braille courses are our most popular courses.

Hadley has discontinued its Braille Literacy 3 and 4 courses for beginning braille students and Introduction to Braille and Contracted Braille courses. Revised courses reflecting the newly adopted Unified English Braille (UEB) are in development. Activation of new courses is expected to begin soon.

The following courses remain available:

Adult Continuing Education and High School Program

Hadley School for Professional Studies

Also available to those students who enrolled in Family Education Program
