Product Description

Want an affordable, compact and fun way to practice your Braille? Are you a parent or teacher looking to pack a Braille-teaching device with you throughout the day for those unexpected "quick refresher" moments? Our new Braille Practice Cell fits the bill perfectly.

Made of smooth, solid wood and measuring just two by three inches, this Braille block easily fits into the palm of your hand. It features two columns of three holes, representing the six dots in a Braille cell. The included six wooden pegs are then inserted into the holes to form any Braille character. The pegs form a large Braille cell easily identified by touch, ideal for new Braille learners of any age to learn their ABCs before moving onto reading paper Braille.

The top-left corner of our wooden Braille cell is cut at an angle to aid with correct orientation. Simply touch the angled corner above and to the left of Dot 1 to make sure the block is right-side up.

In addition, the pegs have ridged sides for easy grasping and manipulation). This is helpful for youngsters still developing fine motor skills or adult Braille learners with diabetes or neuropathy. The pegs themselves fit snugly into the holes, yet are removed without difficulty.

Packed into a drawstring cotton pouch and small enough to carry with you anywhere, our Braille Practice Cell will impress you with its simple but practical functionality. Designed by a certified rehabilitation teacher of the blind and proudly made in the USA, it may well become your new favorite teaching tool!
