The cornerstone of our program is the discussion of myths and misperceptions about blindness. Exploring real-life encounters helps students to deal with all aspects of blindness equipping them with the confidence and belief in themselves needed to be capable, contributing citizens.  Each days students meet as a group for 45 minutes and discuss a relevant topic.  Topics may include “why it is necessary to learn self-advocacy skills” to “everyday stereotypes surrounding blindness.”
