Thank you Karen! I'll pass this information on to the dept chair for the vet para program and I bet this information would be useful to the biology dept as well.

I actually saw something like this in the Skymall catalogue and thought that it was a solid enough idea that there must be other models available. I get the best adaptive technology ideas from that catalogue!

And at the top of the line: http://gradientlens.com/videomicro.asp?gclid=CLj81Z7Q4KcCFU9pKgodR0zN-Q

I know that these might be costly, but if the person is going into this field, they will need their own equipment at some point...wouldn't they?

I didn't price these out...just wanted to show that they exist.

Cheers, Karen

Oh Learned and Esteemed Athenites, I appeal to your vast collective knowledge:
We have a student, legally/medically blind with very little vision, enrolled in our veterinary paramedic program. This program includes a lot of lab work, including using a microscope to identify various specimens, etc. Although I've placed CCTVs in her classrooms for other work, I'm wondering how to accommodate her for the work needed using a microscope!? Not even sure how we would accommodate her when the course work gets to drawing blood, etc.

We're open to suggestions.
