Come Celebrate With Us!

by Carol Castellano

Imilie and Jackson West of Mississippi play on the elephant statuary in the lobby of the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas.The annual seminar of the National Organization of Parents of Blind Children (NOPBC) is always an informative, exciting, and inspiring event. But this year, we’ve got even more to celebrate as we mark the 25th anniversary of the most effective and progressive parent organization for blind children in the country!

NOPBC, in its position as a division of the National Federation of the Blind, has been on the leading edge of just about every breakthrough regarding the education and development of blind children, from white canes for blind kids to Braille literacy to textbooks on time to Active Learning for blind children with multiple disabilities. If you’re looking for the action, you’ve found the spot!

So, do join us in Dallas in late June/early July as we look back and celebrate our history and our accomplishments and march forward toward a future of opportunities for our blind children!
