Footsteps to Inspire Us: Women Who Are Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Blind and Low Vision, and Deaf-Blind
March is Women's History Month. As we celebrate all the women in American and world history whose influence has shaped our lives, we should not forget the influences of women who are deaf or hard of hearing, blind or low vision, and deaf-blind. At first you may not be able to think of any such women. Then you might remember Helen Keller who was both deaf and blind and an inspiration to millions. However, there are many other sensory-disabled women who have not only contributed to their own community but to the world at large.

On the Need for Usable Videos for Deaf-blind Students and How It Can Be Met With Captioning and Description
The Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) is a national non-profit that is
federally funded to serve as a free-loan media library of accessible educational videos
for K–12 students who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, or deaf-blind.
DCMP recently conducted interviews in order to determine how accessible videos are
used in the classroom with students who are deaf-blind and what other options need to
be included in order for these videos to meet the widest need possible.

Blindness and Black History: One Leader's Perspective
When Carter G. Woodson created the observance of "Negro History Week," which later became "Black History Month," he inspired African Americans to protect and uphold their history, which not only includes written history, but also oral history and the preservation of special and unique artifacts. Our history is our genesis, our present, and our path to the future. It explains how we came to be, who we are, where we are today, and where we are going tomorrow.

Everyone Needs a Role Model - Jake Olson
Children often hear the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” They may respond by sharing their goals of wanting to become an astronaut, rock star, princess, or president. While these professions are unlikely outcomes for most children, we try not to discourage their dreams. Do we offer the same level of encouragement to students with disabilities? We should. There are many role models for these students who show us anything is possible.
