I am a totally blind teacher of English from Macedonia and have been working in a school for blind children for almost ten years. Even though, my country is not so well-known when it comes to participating in different long-term international projects, events, conferences, trainings and other such activities that would benefit the blind especially blind children, the only way that most blind people and their family and friends could gather such information is from the internet. I realize that the connection gap between teachers and others who work in the blindness field, as well as their parents and university students who study in special education is greater than ever no matter where they live, so I decided to start a Facebook group that would allow members from all of these groups to connect to each other, share information, support and encouragement that would further help their students, future students and their children.
The group can be looked up on facebook as:
University students, teachers and parents of visually impaired children Or click the link below and open the join group button from there.
This is an international group and we would welcome members from anywhere that think the group would be a benefit to them.
For more information, or if you need any help to join or participate in the group, contact Adrijana Prokopenko at firstname.lastname@example.org
Adrijana also has some other groups you could enquire about, so feel free to ask her when you contact her.
