NABS Presents First Conference Call for Parents of Blind Children!

[From Arielle Silverman on Monday, October 11, 2010]
Attention All Parents!
Not sure about how your blind child is going to tackle classes such as Biology or Physics? Ever been curious about what majors and specialization blind individuals have had in the past? Do you believe that careers and learning about fields such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Math- (STEM), are “too difficult” or “dangerous” for your blind child? Do alternative techniques a blind person may use in such fields just baffle you?
If any of the above apply to you-
Please attend the Membership phone call, presented by the Membership Committee of the National Association of Blind Students.
