In FY2018, the Act to Promote the Education of the Blind provided $305 per student who is blind, and working below college level.  The attached map shows the number of blind and visually impaired students registered in the Federal Quota Program as of January 2019.  The total number of students in the United States, including outlying areas is 56,137.

This is where all TVI’s play such an important role in ensuring that we are registering as many students as possible! With these funds, our children can receive highly needed products for their education.

Hi Friends, Family and new friends

Please fill this 14 question survey out? Computer use as an Adult
We need major research to prove how desperately  children need computer instruction in the school systems by proving what the adult population is using now or if retired, what you did use in your job. The hope is to present this information next year everywhere around the world and in particular at blind conferences in order to get computer instruction into the school systems.
Please pass this onto  family members, friends, colleagues, and adults you can think of and make a plea for them to fill it out. I need to collect as much data as I can in the next few months. Thanks for your help on getting the word out
