Ryan,

That makes sense. I personally don't have a problem with TVI's being there.
I was only thinking that some participants may feel more comfortable asking
questions among fellow students than among both students and teachers,
especially if their own TVI were to call in. Perhaps I am making much ado
about nothing, but just putting it out there.

Chris,
I think that a few TVI's should be there, encase they have questions from
the blind persons prospective, but I do agree, we should keep it more
student oriented.

The problem of blindness is not the lack of eyesight. The real problem is
the misunderstanding and lack of information that exists. If a blind person
has proper training and opportunity, blindness is only a physical nuisance.

Good idea--this could serve as a good source of information for them as
well. However, I'm not sure if we would want them to participate actively
in the call itself or whether we would want to have a recording and/or
notes available online for them to reference later. While there will
doubtless be information provided on such a call which would be useful to
those professionals, I think it would be nice to have a call in which blind
high school students could talk amongst ourselves without TVI's being
involved. Thoughts?

Chris

Sounds good to me.  If this were to happen, if it was possable, you should
alert the VI aids and helpers who work with us high school students, that
way they are aware too.

High school is  definitely one of the most challenging parts of my life in
more than one sense  learning that I was not  alone  in dealing with
accommodations and trying to figure out realistic expectations for myself
was certainly something I wish I  had  better feel for.

 I am wondering if NABS was to organize a call where high school students
could get some of their questions answered by fellow high school students
in a safe environment would any of you be interested i this?
 we would want to maintain this as a place where high school students would
feel comfortable asking questions  and knowing they would get sound advice
from each other.  we  would have a more experienced member of NABS there as
a support, but mainly  
this would be the high school student’s   time.
  thoughts?

If there's anything I can do to assist anyone on this list with
math/science sorts of things: provide pointers on a question, provide a
nonvisual description, anything like that feel free to contact me.  I'm
also willing to give pointers to parents so they can more easily explain
things if that would be helpful as well.
