Special Request from the Fort Madison Lions Club
At our April Board Meeting a request from the Fort Madison Lions Club was read. There are two young children, three and nine years old, who are blind and need Braille-N-Speak tools to help overcome the challenges in their everyday academic pursuits. The Braille-N-Speak allows the child to type an assignment and hand the teacher a print copy. The student can also make a hardcopy in braille, using a braille printer provided by Richardson school. With the spell check feature, calendar, stopwatch, and calculator (including scientific calculator functions), this device can be used throughout a student's school career and beyond. We unanimously agreed to donate $10 for each machine.
