ABLE has been providing alternative ways for people with print disabilities to read for over 52 years. We began our services in 1965 for two schools making braille available to blind children in Wisconsin. We soon broadened our services to offer audio recordings and we have been offering braille and audio production ever since. I was one of those first blind students back in the 60’s getting my braille books at the same time as my sighted peers.
I know just how important our work is because I was that student who needed brailled assignments. ABLE gave me the tools I needed to succeed academically in a sighted world, eventually leading me to run the very organization that served my educational needs for so many years. I feel so privileged and honored to lead this organization into the future.
