I am a speech therapist and I work in a hospital pediatric out patient facility with a new client on my caseload. The child is extremely visually impaired and parents greatest concern is his extremely limited ability to socialize during one on one and in large group situations. Any resources that you could suggest will be appreciated.

A thank you card with birds and hearts

When I first heard about Geno and his fundraiser for WonderBaby and Perkins School for the Blind I was in the hospital sitting next to my son's bed. He had experienced 17 seizures in less than 2 hours and we had to rush him to the emergency room at Boston Children's Hospital.

Wonder what it's like to use Facebook if you are not able to see?

Facebook recognizes that the blind community wants to "experience Facebook the same way others enjoy it," and took action. The world's largest social media platform introduced its latest accessibility feature for blind users that automatically describes photos throughout timelines and albums. The "automatic alternative text" technology uses artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze the image, then announces the findings aloud via VoiceOver on Apple devices or TalkBack for Android.

Is your child interested in pursuing work in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) after high school? The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) has announced its FREE summer engineering programs for 2016 as an extension program of the National Center for Blind Youth in Science. The programs are for students in grades 9-12 during the 2015-2016 school year who are blind or have low-vision in the United States. The two separate programs will be held June 19-25, 2016 and July 31-August 6, 2016 in Baltimore, Maryland.
