Braille American Flag Monuments Officially Arrive At The National September 11 Memorial And Museum!

Tactile braille american flag

Two bronze Braille American Flag monuments have successfully arrived at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum for permanent display by all New Yorkers and visitors to that great city!  (Photos to arrive soon)!

Until the museum is officially opened one of the monuments will be included in the museums traveling display to schools and other locations.  The monuments were made possible through the generation   donations of the Joanna Troutman NSDAR Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution located in Magnolia Texas.   The event was organized by Sharon Sharman Russell DAR Chapter Regent and Alexandra Drakakis, Assistant Curator of Collections of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.

To learn how you or your organization can participate in an event to have a Braille monument located at a place of your choosing, or at a national site, please contact us at info@kbti.org, or call us at 316-265-9692.

Scouting With Special Needs and Disabilities

The boy scout handbook

Since its founding in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has had fully participating members with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. James E. West, the first Chief Scout Executive, was a person with a disability.

Last year our Institute received copyright permissions from the American Boy Scouts to produce Braille versions of its Anniversary Handbook and all other requested literature and publications.

We are pleased to announce a Braille version of the Anniversary Edition of the Boy Scouts of America Handbook is now available for orders! The Handbook is still the go-to book for every Scout, but now with more information than ever before. (To order a copy, please visit our Store page). Ask about a print with Braille version if you are interested in reading along with your Scout. See pamphlet here.

Support disabled veterans

The Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center and KBTI have joined to offer paid training and employment to disabled and homeless Veterans.

If you or someone you know is a service connected disabled veteran you may be eligible to receive paid training, followed by full time employment. Training and employment involves learning Braille transcription, and assistive technologies. Some qualified candidates may also be eligible for housing and other benefits. To learn more call us at 316-265-9692. (Wichita, Kansas area only).
