Hi KSB, I wanted to make sure you all are aware of some webinars we're doing at APH today and Monday. These are going to be great and I don't want anyone to miss them! Please share with families if you can. Get all the details here: www.aphconnectcenter.org/webinars/upcoming-webinars
I attended KSB for many years in the 70s . I just wanted to let everyone know that this is a great school. I learned a lot things that I still use to this day. I met a lot of people that I still think of. Parents worry about their kids especially who have problems. I am here to say this school is a great and safe place
I am looking for a lady who worked there in the recreation dept maybe 1977-1979. Mary Hunter. She got married but I do not know her married name. I am hoping someone will remember her. I worked with her in Michigan at the VFW home for children.
Please email [email protected] ASAP. Our contact on file is not responding. Thank you

SOAR or the Spread of Active reading is a podcast project that produces audible book trailers and adverts for the blind and those with impaired sight and anybody who is interested or wants to become interested or is ready to try to become interested, in reading. The idea is to offer recordings which act as trailers to books, similar to trailers for movies. These Book Trailers enthrall listeners and put seeds of curiosity into their minds, giving them the appeal to read books.
SOAR also has bonus episodes of full short stories.
Below are the links for some of the platforms for SOAR

Southern hospitality in Louisville is now a little sweeter with 17 accessible restaurant menus. A more genteel way for folks with vision limitations to read menus using screen readers, low vision display settings and even braille displays.

Dear Administrators, Teachers, Transcribers, and Paraprofessionals,
With the ever-changing landscape of public education in the digital age, and the adoption of the Unified English Braille code within the United States, those who teach students to read braille, and particularly those who transcribe and produce materials for students who are blind are faced with new challenges.
The National Braille Association is the only national organization dedicated to providing continuing education to those who prepare braille. During October 30-November 1, 2019, our organization will be hosting a 3 day Professional Development Conference at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. The conference will bring together braille transcribers and teachers of the visually impaired from the United States and Canada. Participants will be offered 25 different workshops providing education and instruction in various levels of expertise and disciplines.
Leading experts from across the nation will be providing technical training and lectures on topics such as best practices for preparing electronic graphics, converting Nemeth textbooks from your libraries and archives into useful UEB files, music braille, computer-assisted transcription, as well as instructional resources and strategies found in Wayfinding Through Non-textbook Materials: Go Ask Alice, She’ll Tell You Why and Navigating Resources, just to name a few.
NBA would like to extend a personal invitation to you, and those you work with, to join us in Phoenix for this opportunity to learn about the changes, increase your knowledge, perfect your skills, and network with other professionals and agencies, all in an effort to ensure student literacy across the nation. Please visit our website https://www.nationalbraille.org/professional-development-conference/ for complete details of workshop offerings and the conference agenda.
Please feel free to forward this information to your specialized materials coordinators, braille transcribers, teachers, and paraprofessionals who may benefit from this information. Please contact me if you have any questions.
We hope to see you in Arizona!

Camp Crescendo Vision Camp appplications are due June 1st.
Camp Crescendo still has room for campers in our camp for visually impaired youth. We are also looking for counselors to help make our camp great. Contact [email protected] for more information.
Hello,
I am trying to contact the principal, admissions or marketing director of your blind school. If you could have them email me ([email protected]) I would greatly appreciate it!
Cheers!
Chris

Elementary summer camp students enjoyed a visit from Teddy Abrams of the Louisville Orchestra today. His visit included music from famous composers and an opportunity for students to help compose a music story of their own, which they titled “The Princess Jungle”.
