Blind and partially sighted students are marginalised – and it’s partly because they don’t know about assistive technology.
To correct this, the SANCB’s Assistive Technology Centre held a number of roadshows at universities and technical colleges earlier this year.
The roadshow tackled topics like assistive technology, student funding, and self-advocating for greater inclusivity and awareness on campus. Students went away with a better appreciation of how to help themselves . . . and knowledge that friends like you and the SANCB are here to help them too.
Most of the road- shows were postponed due to Covid-19 but we’ll get back on the road as quickly as possible.
