The Hadley School For The Blind

After my mother was declared legally blind, as a result of macular degeneration, she desired to finish her high school degree.

I found out about the distance learning program offered from Hadley School For The Blind. My mother enrolled and worked through the coursework, but unfortunately she died before completing it. I'd like to share some information with you about their programs.

The Hadley School for the Blind offers more than 100 distance education courses free of charge to those who are blind, their families or blindness professionals. Students can select from a variety of courses and study anytime, anywhere.

What a great resource for learning!

It is certainly a wonderful program for visually impaired homeschoolers!
