Dear Parent or Guardian:
The Professional Development and
Research Institute on Blindness at Louisiana Tech University invites you to
participate in a study to evaluate the services and to understand the
educational experiences of blind and/or visually impaired youth in grades K

academic performance of blind and/or visually impaired youth.

ages of 5-22 and be enrolled in a school in the United States in grades K
