During the month of March, we’ll be continuing to offer three short-length webinars at no cost to the public. As always, we’ll have our Braille Formats webinar on the first Friday of the month, a Music Braille webinar, and our rotating topic for this month will be Math and Science Braille.

The webinars last on average about fifteen minutes and are intended to touch on an area of instruction that allows an attendee to learn a new skill (or update an old one) without needing to commit an extended amount of time. Anyone with an internet connection is invited to the first come, first serve attendance of any free webinar hosted by NBA. Current members are able to log in to our website and view unlimited replays of each webinar.
