I was forwarded an email last week from my boss who was contacted by this company: the email said in regards to this web site:

"My organization has just completed our new guide with resources, tools and technology advancements to support students with visual impairments, and I think it would fit nicely on your page above. You can find the guide here:

Helping Students with Visual Impairments

The guide was created in part by four experts in the field, who lent their experience and expertise to help us provide students with visual impairments the tips and resources needed to succeed in school. Key features of our guide include:

- Tips for choosing the right college
- An in-depth look at the top assistive technology and tools being used today
- Scholarships available for students with visual impairments

Will you help us share this guide with your community and support students with visual impairments by including our guide on your site as a link resource?"

I thought some of you might find this item of interest:

Helping Students with Visual Disabilities AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org<http://AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org>

I'd be curious if anyone knows more about this organization/project. Questions that crossed my mind, for example:

-- I didn't see a "last updated" date. Maybe I missed it. But when I see things like this, I always wonder if they're being maintained.
-- I also didn't see any other disabilities, and I wonder why. Why only blindness/visual impairment? Again, maybe I missed more.

I'm not meaning to open up a can of worms, if there is one; I'm simply unfamiliar with this organization.
