IPads Changing Lives For Visually Impaired Students

Ipads are making life easier for millions of Americans. The NY Institute is using the iPad in ways that is revolutionizing the way our students learn and interact. Recently, CBS News ran a national story that highlighted the school and its technology program.

The story has had national and international coverage. Variations of the story have played in almost 100 cities across the United States. A list of cities that aired the segment is below. The video is also available on, YouTube, Facebook and was even heard on the radio in a segment of CBS Radio’s Osgood File and 1010 WINS. A link to the video can be found in blogs as far away as Hungary.

The students did a phenomenal job in the demonstrations and in the personal interviews. They have done us proud.
