    The program we set up in Phoenix in June 2014 is being taught by four instructors, has three classes a week, and is in hot demand. The lead instructor is Sharon Wertz, who has posted some of the activities on her blog at

    As you can see, this is developing into a very successful and popular program with the clients of the Arizona Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Phoenix. Bravo Sharon for your hard work.

    We already have an active program in Tampa, and hope to set up a similar program in Pittsburgh this summer, after the annual symposium.
