I forward this to any of you who may not be familiar with the Hadley School for the Blind.  They’re a great resource.

July 2020: Launch Edition




The Future of Hadley is NOW


Hadley celebrates our centennial anniversary this year. And while no one could have seen 2020 unfolding the way it has, distance learning and technology have played important roles in our “new normal.” Now, I’d like to invite you to another celebration—a chance to rediscover Hadley for yourself. 

We have designed our new learning experience as a guided approach through a variety of topics. So, whether you’d like to discuss gardening techniques, learn how to safely use a sharp knife, or discover ways to use your smart phone with more confidence, you’ll find something for you at Hadley. And of course, we continue to innovate our approach to braille, too.

Thank you for trusting Hadley through the years. And remember, we are in this together—for many years to come.

Take good care,
Julie Tye, President





Workshops: A New Learning Experience




We’ve reinvented the learning experience at Hadley and we’re eager for you to give it a try. Courses and instructional videos have been transformed into what we’re calling workshops.

Each workshop offers concise, practical help on topics of Daily Living, Technology, Adjusting to Vision Loss, Recreation, Working and Braille. There are video components, transcripts, and links to resources and handouts. They also give you direct connection to experts if you need more help.

To begin with, we have nearly 500 workshops, discussion groups, and audio podcasts ready for you. And we’re adding new titles every week.

You’ll need to register once on the new site. But from there your computer will remember you every time you return and will track your progress every time you log on.

Discussion Groups


Hadley discussion groups have proven to be very popular and will continue well into the future. These call-in sessions give you a chance to learn from and share with each other as well as the Hadley facilitator.

>From gardening to cooking, crafting to braille, you’re bound to find a group that’s right for you.
