The Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities is pleased to announce a brand-new initiative launching Fall 2020: RCPD will provide electronic braille displays to incoming blind students who use braille at no cost to them – the first program of its kind at any university in the United States!
As summer approaches, the RCPD reflects on a year of growing community relationships, applauding outstanding students and staff and expanding programming opportunities. The annual Awards and Appreciation Reception marked 40 years of success.
Unlike many MSU students, those with print-related disabilities, including blindness, learning disabilities, and motoric challenges, begin the text book shopping process with a trip to the bookstore- but this is just the first step.
The start of classes brings challenges for Amanda Gretka and other students with print-related disabilities including blindness, learning disabilities and motoric challenges that many would not imagine.
â€œWeâ€™re just the kind of people who like to remain behind the scenesâ€ claims Mr. Carlson. Yet given their recent generous funding of a new endowment for accessible media, the Carlsons play a visible and valued role in RCPD student success.
