The Hadley School for the Blind has created a new and exciting online forum for visitors to the Hadley Web site to connect with one another. This will allow not only visitors but also Hadley students in all 50 states and 100 countries, who otherwise would not have met, to associate with each other as well as ask questions of Hadley staff.

The new online discussion board went live Thursday, September 15th. Visitors to the Hadley Web site will be able to join discussions by simply registering with a valid email address. Go to and activate the Forums link to reach the Hadley Discussion Board. Follow the Register link to join the forums.

Hadley students have been asking for a means through which they can communicate with each other, said Hadley Interim President Dawn Turco. Our new discussion board does this and more, as it allows for interaction with others, worldwide.

Moderated by school staff, the online discussion board offers five forums: braille; technology; professionals; families; and general inquiries.

The Hadley School for the Blind is one of the largest worldwide educators of blind and visually impaired people. Since its founding by William Hadley and Dr. E.V.L. Brown in 1920, all of Hadley's distance education courses have been provided free of charge. Today, the school serves over 10,000 students annually in all 50 states and 100 countries. Hadley relies on contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations to fund its programs. Visit us on the Web at .
