[Blindmath] Susan Question on Graphing Calculators

I didn't take that email as the author had to much resources.  I think it
is always important for family's to look at other funding. Including extra
work if you can. Note his email said not relying totally on them not just
disregarding them.  I can see how you might have took this as an attack but
one of the things families can do is go to groups like the Lions Club,
churches, or others   for extra support.  I have a friend that did just
that and was able to get an entire computer system with access technology
thrown in.  So it does not hurt to point out planning ahead is still great
way to do things.
I actually think his email was a very good forward thinking way to look at
life.  We cannot always expect one group or another to do everything and
that includes non-profits and government.

This is an odd and frankly an inappropriate response. Are you blind or
parent of a blind student? It is nice you have so many resources to money.
Not everyone does. Keep this negativity off this thread. We get enough from
the world at large. This is a forum for positive,moving forward thinkers.

Peace and Love to all!

fund it yourselves rather than relying completely on VR funding or
scholarships. I'm aware of disabled individuals and parents of disabled
children who realized what they or their kids would need in the way of
technology and other issues and put their nonproductive time to developing
additional income so they could have the financial resources available to
meet these needs. This is yet another option for funding the purchase this
technology.

>> Yes, the school will keep it. As for Dars purchasing one, it has to make
their approved products list before they do it, and it could be difficult
because that Calculator isn't technology they routinely purchase for their
clients. Four a piece of blindness technology, the calculator isn't that
expensive, and if your son was able to get a scholarship for even $1000, he
could purchase the calculator himself without having to deal with any
agency or anything. He would even have several hundred dollars left over
afterwards. I've never used one of the new ones, so I don't know if there
any good. There was this one on the computer called the audio graphing
calculator that I used at one point, and everyone was saying it was great,
but I thought it was primitive and difficult to use compared to what my
cited had. Now, I just go without one. Graphs really don't mean much to me
anyways, so I get a lot more information from equations and tables of
values. I do like the audio pgraphs better than the tactile ones assuming I
can get the calculator to graph what I want without bringing up in error or
graphing the wrong equation, So if I could see one without buying it and I
liked it, I would try to get one.
