Since the first Prison Braille Forum, which was held in conjunction with the 2001 Annual Meeting, the professionals working with braille production programs in correctional settings have identified the need for a directory of established programs. APH published a directory in 2004 and has recently updated information and released a 2009 edition. This compilation of data on existing prison braille programs will help programs market their services, and it will enable individuals and agencies in need of braille materials to identify and contact potential sources. In addition, anyone interested in starting or improving a program can contact experienced professionals through this directory.
A limited number of print copies are available upon request, and the document will be available soon as a free download in a print or braille format from the APH website. Check the website in coming weeks for its electronic release.
