Examining the Impact of COVID-19

AFB recently released the Access and Engagement research report, which investigated the early impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on education for students with visual impairments, including those with additional disabilities. Through a collaborative effort, the research team is now conducting a follow-up survey to identify the successes and challenges being experienced by students and professionals during the 2020-2021 school year.

Our Commitment

We grieve for Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others. We join with our colleagues in the civil rights community in calling on all levels of our government to commit to substantive and meaningful reform. And we commit to examining our own practices, and living our values, every day, to build a world of no limits for all.
