Science Thursdays- Low Cost (But High Tech) Tools to Help Blind Children See and LearnFebruary 18, 2016- 7-8:00 pm
Infants and small children with visual impairments will typically face two key challenges in life: 1) getting their ocular condition diagnosed quickly (to minimize vision loss), and 2) getting on the right developmental track for a first-rate education. I will discuss a few simple tools we have developed to help children win these battles.
