Free UEB Course from Hadley

UEB from Hadley

Hadley School for the Blind will be offering a free course on transitioning to UEB (Unified English Braille) beginning in January.  Thanks to the American Printing House for the Blind (APH), this professional course will be tuition-free through the end of calendar year 2015.  This is the first of two courses to be developed by Hadley focusing on the new braille code, which is scheduled to be implemented in January 2016.  

The six-lesson course provides a structured approach to learning the difference between EBAE (English Braille American Edition) and Unified English Braille (UEB).  Examples and exercises are designed to help students transition to the new code. Prerequisites include strong contracted reading and writing skills in EBAE or SEB (Standard English Braille).
