What it is and how Maine will implement the changes it brings
Recorded: May 2, 2017 – The United States began implementation of UEB on January 4, 2016. This webinar will give a brief overview of what the Unified English Braille code is and the implications for school districts in Maine. We will review the Maine State Plan and how it is similar or dissimilar to other states around the country. We will discuss resources and do our best to answer any questions you may have around this topic.
