Apple has announced that its Everyone Can Code programming education initiative will be partnering with eight U.S. schools for the blind and deaf. The program uses the Swift Playgrounds iPad app to teach coding skills to K-12 students. It will soon be offering classes at California School for the Blind (Fremont, California), California School for the Deaf (Fremont, California), District 75/Citywide Programs, New York City Department of Education (New York, New York), Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (St. Augustine, Florida), Hadley Institute for the Blind and Visually Impaired (Winnetka, Illinois), Perkins School for the Blind (Watertown, Massachusetts), Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (Austin, Texas) and Texas School for the Deaf (Austin, Texas).

"Apple collaborated with engineers, educators, and programmers from various accessibility communities to make Everyone Can Code as accessible as possible and will work in close coordination with schools to augment the curricula as needed," Apple said in its press release. "This will include providing additional tools and resources such as tactile maps to enhance the understanding of coding environments for non-visual learners."
