FB Tech Notes
Flying Blind, LLC is excited to announce that it will be launching a series of workshops and seminars for rehabilitation and educational agencies who provide services for persons who are vision impaired.
The seminars will focus on developing functional academic and vocational adaptive technology skills designed to provide successful outcomes within the classroom and workplace.
These seminars will be geared toward the service professional who wishes to compliment their service provision with strategies designed to change the lives of their consumers.
Also, consumers who are serious about incorporating products and strategies into their educational and rehabilitation plans are welcome.
More information about these workshops will be forthcoming in late January / early February, 2008. In the meantime, all interested parties should E-Mail FBWorkshops@Flying-Blind.com for more information.

Visitors can stay updated with a daily E-Mail list of bargains or through an RSS feed.
The site also contains news pertaining to the blind community, articles and reviews of products and web sites, and links to other useful resources.
