Dr. L. Penny Rosenblum

AFB’s Director of Research Dr. L. Penny Rosenblum recently joined the Blind Abilities podcast to talk about the two recent surveys, Flatten Inaccessibility and Access and Engagement to Education.

Dr. Rosenblum discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting educational services for children birth to 21 years of age and their families, how TVIs and O&M instructors are meeting students’ educational needs, and how adults who are blind or low vision were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in areas of healthcare, employment, transportation, education, social experiences, access to meals, food and supplies, and voting.

She also talks about an upcoming book, “Finding Wheels,” written for travelers in their teens or early 20s. It helps them prepare to be a successful nondriver and to explore low vision driving if this is an option they want to learn more about. Dr. Rosenblum has also created videos for “Finding Wheels.”

The full reports for Flatten Inaccessibility and Access & Engagement will soon be published – sign up to be notified they are available and stay up to date with AFB’s future research projects.
