White Cane Safety...a special program at R. L. Young!

Visitors to the school often open our minds to consider new ideas and gain important information. This past week third and fourth graders were in the audience of a White Cane Safety Program from AIDB. Five guests affiliated with the campus brought items of interest-guide dog, white cane, braille machine, and a sample of braille to share with the students. 

Students were free to ask questions of each speaker and become very comfortable learning about people who were visually challenged. These delightful guests made us laugh and opened our minds to learn more about others. Each student received a card with his/her name typed in braille. 

We appreciate AIDB for including us in this informative program! We hope you will come back again next year.
