My husband and I have recently considered moving to a different state. What are some questions I need to ask both the local public schools and the states school of the blind? I want to make sure we move to a good school district that is willing and capable of teaching a fully blind student. Or is there a state agency I need to ask these questions to?

My son recently turned six years old, and he is in a Pre-K program at a preschool for blind and visually impaired children. He has bilateral ONH with light perception. We are planning for Kindergarten, and we don't know how mainstream kindergarten classes would accommodate his needs. Does anyone have any guidance?

My son 6yr has 18p-22q11.2 and as a result of these two conditions has hypotonia and hypermobility and uses a fist grip rather than a pincer resulting in his ability to write being limited to around 10-15 words in an hour. he is now starting to suffer and fall so far behind in school. He also has hearing loss and is fitted with transmitters in school.

I am going to be a Consultative teacher at another campus in our county. One child has been diagnosed with autism and is also deaf. I have worked with students who had some hearing loss, but through the use of technology and a small microphone he was able to meet his goals and beyond.. I would like to have guidance on "my" transition into this class.

The advice I have received from everyone has been so helpful and comforting so I thought I would throw another question out there :) We have been discussing school alot recently..public school v.s a day student at a school for the blind. We still have about a year until she is preschool age but if we choose a school for the blind, we need to start the process of moving asap.

Dear Comrades (And I do not use that word lightly. It is a war we fight everyday for our children), I have a dilemma that I am struggling with and really need other parents thoughts who go through the same worries that I feel everyday. Berkley (my angel) has been blind since birth. She has some thyroid problems, however other than that she is "normal"! What a term..."normal".

I would love to know at how old are blind kids ready to start going to school?

I have a partially sighted baby who is 1 year 4 months old. I would love to know when she can start going to school.

And how I can get the best toys for her since in our country we can hardly find any.
