Braille Handbook for Boy Scouts

Not too long ago KBTI was contacted by a local Boy Scout troop that wanted to include a visually impaired boy.  Apparently there are no copies of the Boy Scout Handbook in braille which makes it difficult for blind boys to follow and achieve without great assistance.  

So we've created the first official Braille Boy Scout Handbook. 

Earlier this year our Institute teamed up with the National Headquarters of the Boy Scouts of America to produce a Braille version of one of their handbooks.  Next week we will begin mass producing them and assisting with getting them into the hands of current blind boy scouts, and young boys that are blind and are wanting to become a boy scout.

We're exited about this and can't wait to present the handbook to the the local Boy Scout who inspired this journey and we know it will open doors to young men across the United States. 

Watch here for upcoming photos and videos about this exciting event!
