The American Foundation for the Blind is very pleased by today's Supreme Court unanimous ruling making it clear that if a school discriminates against a child for using a guide dog or service animal, parents are legally able to go straight to court to enforce the student's rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504.

Calling all education advocates! The Cogswell-Macy Act has been reintroduced in the House as HR 1120 with bipartisan support. The bill will expand IDEA to better meet the unique learning needs of students with sensory disabilities, including those who are blind, visually impaired, deaf, hard of hearing, or deafblind. Once enacted, the Cogswell-Macy Act will ensure every student with a sensory disability is properly counted, taught, and evaluated. To urge swift action on the bill, leading groups from across the sensory disabilities communities have designated March 1 as Cogswell-Macy Act Hill Day. Advocates will be at the Capitol to educate members of Congress on the merits of the legislation. This event also kicks off the 2017 AFB Leadership Conference taking place in the nation's capital.

There's only a week to go until the 2017 Joint AFB and Virginia AER Leadership Conference, and if you work in aging and vision loss you'll find a robust track on this important topic. In addition to sessions on cultural competence, elder abuse, managing your caseload, and responding to medical issues, there will also be a public policy session on continuing our National Conversation on Aging and Vision Loss. It's not too late to register for this amazing event! http://ow.ly/H7e7309eyCj Image: White words and art on a blue background resemble a blueprint.

This past weekend in the New York Times, personal health writer Jane E. Brody tackled a sensitive topic: the experiences and emotions of people who are losing their sight. The article was titled, "The Worst That Could Happen? Going Blind, People Say." Surveys do show us that many people deeply fear losing their sight and the perceived negative impact it would have on their life. But as Kirk Adams, AFB president and CEO explains, that doesn't have to be the case, for reasons some may find surprising. http://ow.ly/oV0o309egEY

The largest population of Americans who experience low vision is older adults over the age of 65. During the month of February, which is recognized as Low Vision Awareness Month, AccessWorld, in partnership with the National Research and Training Center on Blindness and Low Vision (NRTC) at Mississippi State University brings you a special issue on aging and technology. At times, older adults may be hesitant to adopt the use of technology, especially access technology, and in this issue, AccessWorld breaks down the barriers, removes uncertainty, and demonstrates how access technology can help improve independence and daily life. This issue also reviews the recent Consumer Electronics Show and ATIA 2017.
