Hands

Hands: Click here to subscribe

Description High School/College.
HANDS is a support list primarily aimed at blind high school and college students. Pretty much anything goes as long as members feel the need to discuss it. We don't encourage political announcements or commercials, but if they happen they happen. The main thrust of the list is to let blind students exchange techniques for dealing with student life and to allow them to vent their frustrations, but we've been known to discuss a good movie or book from time to time.

NABS-L

NABS-L: Click here to subscribe

Description High school/College.
NABS-L, the National Alliance of Blind Students' Symposium, is an open-forum discussion list designed to facilitate dialogue among blind/visually-impaired students regarding relevant issues and topics of interest. Examples of topics appropriate for this list include, but are not limited to: educational equity and equality for the blind, employment issues and opportunities, the use of computers and other assistive technology, accessibility issues, discrimination, advocacy, working with readers, dealing with campus offices of Disabled Student Services, breaking down prejudice and stereotypes of blindness, maintaining and fostering independence, and exchanging ideas and personal experience stories of blindness. It is hoped that this list will enable blind students to make the most of their college experiences, and will encourage their full and equal participation in society. This list will also serve as a forum for disseminating and discussing issues specifically related to NABS, the National Alliance of Blind Students, which is an affiliate of The American Council of the Blind (ACB). However, all blind students are encouraged to join; list participants need not be members of NABS or ACB. While NABS-L is primarily intended for blind and visually-impaired students, other interested persons may also take part, provided these individuals are committed to independence and equality for the blind, and provided this list does not lose its student-oriented focus.

Description Education.
Welcome to the UK based group for visually impaired students! If you join this group, you will be able to join in discussions with other blind and partially sighted students and those interested in studying. This group has been set up by Abapstas, the Association of Blind and Partially Sighted Teachers and Students.   We are a UK based organisation although we do have members in Ireland. You can ask questions about how to tackle difficult situations, share experiences or find out what it would be like to study.   Or you might just want to join up and listen to the email discussions which we have as part of this group. In any case, we look forward to meeting you by email.

Abapstas was founded in 1970 by a small number of visually impaired people with the primary aim of supporting students, teachers and lecturers.   Since then, Abapstas has grown into a national self-help and campaigning organisation with a strong local and national voice.   Our main focus is still on education and employment but our members now include people who have moved into careers other than teaching.
