ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Some kids got to learn about what it is like for someone who reads Braille.
Kids gathered around Wednesday at the South Valley Library to learn a unique lesson.
Antonio Martinez, a 15-year-old who is visually impaired, read a book about Louis Braille, the founder of the language. He then taught the students a little bit about the language and how to read it.
Students also got to take part in different activities, including getting a feel for their name in Braille.
Martinez is part of the “Step” program through the New Mexico Commission for the blind, which helps students with visual impairments transition into the workforce.
