Help study the reading preferences of visually impaired youthThe Professional Development and Research Institute on Blindness at Louisiana Tech University is seeking research participants for a study aimed at evaluating the reading characteristics and behaviors of blind/visually impaired youth grades 3-12 to better understand how various formats impact leisure reading. As a result of this study, we will gain a much richer and robust understanding of factors that impact a child's desire to read for pleasure, which may also impact academic performance. If you might be interested in having your child participate in the study, see more details at
