“If someone told me a year ago that my daughter would within a year’s time be on social media, texting and emailing via her iPhone, managing her time using electronic technology, doing online learning and syncing a laptop, iPhone and braille display and two separate key boards and know what she was doing  I would never have believed it.  And as a result my daughter is empowered and feeling so much more competent and willing to take on more challenges. And she did all this with the added challenge of having cerebral palsy, making it hard for her to type well.  Anyone who is visually impaired needs to know about Oak Hill and the services they offer.”  – Bo Page
