Did you know?
Louis Braille started creating his system of reading when he was about 12 years old?!
Braille became official in 1824 (when Louis was 15).

What an incredible and impressive fact! Louis Braille was clearly an amazing inventor.

It's Braille Literacy Month and, although this seems to be principally an America-based event, we thought it a great theme for January.
In fact, Louis Braille was both born and died in January and it's down to him that we have this fantastic system of communication.
How many of you use Braille on a regular basis?

To celebrate UK Disability History Month we thought we'd share this fantastic clip of an invention created for Wu Jing, a blind flautist from China.
She wanted to play with other musicians but how can she be part of a symphony ensemble without being able to follow the conductor?
Watch and find out! ow.ly/uG6350CBuPW
