We've been reintroducing the Perkins SMART brailler to students in our elementary class.  The video screen and audio feedback seems to increase student focus and interest.  The best part? It can make learning braille FUN.

White Cane Day!

Yes, we celebrated White Can Day @ KSSB this year!  National White Cane Safety Day is observed annually on October 15.

Since 1964, White Cane Safety Day has been a national observance in the United States.  This day has been set aside to celebrate all of thachievements of people who are blind or visually impaired and the important symbol of blindness and tool of independence, the white cane.A joint resolution of the United States Congress H.R. 753 was signed into law as Pub.L.88-628 on October 6, 1964 and codified at 36 USC § 142 .   It was this resolution that authorized the President of the United States to proclaim October 15 of each year as “White Cane Safety Day”.Within hours of the passage of the joint resolution President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the first White Cane Safety Day proclamation.White Cane Safety Day was also named Blind Americans Equality Day, in 2011, by President Barack Obama. For more information regarding White Cane Safety Day from the National Federation of the Blind, see: https://nfb.org/white-cane-safety-day
