Spring 2000 Volume 5, No. 2


If you are receiving this newsletter, congratulations! You are one of the approximately 1,900 individuals who remembered to send in your update for our new mailing list database. We are pleased that you took the time to send it in, and we think this new database will be much more accurate than our previous one. However, our old mailing list had over 7,000 addresses. Now, we know that many of those were old addresses, and we know that some people no longer wish to receive SEE/HEAR for one reason or another. We also think that many people who did want to continue getting the newsletter didn't get an updated form mailed to us. Since you did, we need your help.

If you are a teacher, caseworker, or other professional working with families of children with visual impairments or deafblindness, please check with those families and ask them if they received this newsletter. Also, check with your colleagues who would like to or normally receive the newsletter. If they didn't get a newsletter this time around and would like to receive it in the future, please share with them a copy of the form included in this newsletter, or on the TSBVI website.

If you are a parent of a child with visual impairments or deafblindness, check with other parents or your child's professionals to see if they received this edition of the newsletter. If they didn't and would like to start or continue to receive it, have them call us at (512) 206-9103, visit the website, or make a copy of the form included with this newsletter.

You are in for a real treat this month. The Spring 2000 SEE/HEAR has many wonderful articles. I would like to take a minute to say thanks to the SEE/HEAR Section Editors, Jean Robinson, Gigi Newton, Ann Rash, Jenny Lace, and Jim Durkel. Also, thanks to Edgenie Lindquist our TCB Consultant, Craig Axelrod our Layout Editor, Jesse J. Garcia, our Production Editor and Cyral Miller who is the best proofreader I know. Without their efforts and the efforts of Jim Allan who makes the newsletter available on the web, Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic, which records this on audiocassette and Ann Hill at TCB who does our braille edition, this newsletter literally wouldn't happen. I appreciate you more than you know, and so do all the readers of SEE/HEAR.
