Today’s Solutions: December 04, 2022

In April of 2019, we shared a story about LEGO and its plans to launch a line of their famous bricks to introduce blind people to the braille alphabet. Now we’re happy to share those bricks are ready to be distributed.

The LEGO Foundation molded the bricks with studs that correspond to numbers and letters in the braille alphabet. The foundation is sending the blocks, free of charge, to school districts across the United States, according to a press release from American Printing House, a non-profit that promotes independent living for people who are blind and visually impaired.

For schools that won’t be reopening this fall, the LEGO Foundation is sending the braille bricks to districts where blind or visually impaired students are registered in the hopes that teachers or administrators can send them to students’ homes.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be working with LEGO to distribute an incredible tool to help introduce students to braille,” APH President Craig Meador said. “Reading braille means literacy that connects students to lifelong learning and opportunity.”
