Hi,

I'm blind and began reading braille before Kindergarten.   I also learned 
the Nemeth braille system for math and the braille music code.  While I also 
hold degrees to teach blind adults, I've discovered that there are a lot of 
families and children who need crucial instruction, skills, and support.
