Braille Reading Standards

Braille Standards from the California State Board of Education

These braille standards, adopted by the California State Board of Education in 2006, are carefully aligned with the English-language Arts Content Standards for students for print readers, but emphasize the unique differences in learning to read and write through the sense of touch. California is the first state to address the unique needs of students who are braille readers in their state-adopted reading and mathematics content standards.  The standards are broken down by grade level (K-12) and include concepts about braille and the mechanics of braille reading.
