Washington State School for the Blind Team Visits TSB

A delegation en route to the APH Annual Meeting from the Washington State School for the Blind visited TSB on October 2, 2018, toured our school and sat down with Dr. Martin and Dr. Segers. They discussed services at both schools, collaboration and sharing ideas. We were grateful to have this
 
time of learning and exploring beneficial avenues for the future of the blind and visually impaired.
