Review for Hadley Institute for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Winnetka, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a longtime professional who has worked in the field of blindness and low vision for 30+ years as a university professor and direct service professional. Truthfully, my finest and most fulfilling experience during recent years has been my great pleasure as serving as a Hadley School for the Blind Ambassador.

The goal of the Hadley Ambassador program is to provide a first-hand opportunity to learn how Hadley can help supplement local rehabilitation services through a collaborative learning partnership. To date, Hadley has trained 60 ambassadors, who represent more than 50 agencies from 28 states and 10 Canadian provinces. To the best of my knowledge, this type of program is unique within the blindness field.

As an educator, I can state with confidence that quality of Hadley's programs is extremely high, and all staff demonstrate unerring dedication to the maintenance of this high-quality content and to the accessibility of all courses to learners who are blind or have low vision.

Thanks to the Ambassador program, I have renewed admiration for the comprehensive services that Hadley provides to learners throughout the world. I am proud to be associated with Hadley School for the Blind.
