We are excited to announce an interagency collaboration to develop an effective pathway for introducing the changes from English Braille American Edition (EBAE) to Unified English Braille (UEB). The approaching changes to the Braille Code require that those it impacts and those responsible for addressing those changes gather to plan for its implementation. We want to work as a community and to support the implementation of UEB and are inviting stakeholders to participate in an initial meeting on January 12, 2015 from 9:00-4:00 that will be held at the Arizona Department of Education Building, Room 312, 1535 W. Jefferson, Phoenix, AZ. A second, follow up meeting has been scheduled for February 9th, 2015 at the Flinn Foundation on 1802 N Central Ave., Phoenix, AZ if necessary to finalize recommendations made, and invite additional participants. To help us to strategically plan for the needs identified by the group, we have invited a meeting facilitator to help us collaborate effectively.
Some of the questions to be addressed at this meeting are:
- What is the initiative that is bringing about these changes?
- Who will these changes impact?
- What actions need to be taken as a result of decisions made?
- What additional stakeholders need to be included?
Lunch will not be provided, however time will be allotted to order in, or to go to nearby restaurants.
