Lions Cubs Learn ASL and Braille

Braille Class

The Louisiana Deafblind Project in conjunction with the Kenner and Harahan Lions Clubs offered ASL and Braille classes to Lions Cub members and their parents over eight weeks this summer. Sign language interpreter, Nicky Gillies, introduced the participants to basic sign language. Project staff, Rose Angelocci, along with Kenneth Lacho from UNO TRAC provided opportunities for participants to explore vision loss, braille, and technology used by people who are blind or visually impaired. We thank the Cubs and their parents for their participation and interest in connecting with People with disabilities in their community.
