Jason Corning, an enthusastic Deafblind 23 year old fellow is the latest trailblazer in the Deafblind community in America to test the limitations and failures of the transportation system.
Corning, an alumnus from University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a BBA in IT, joined a group of Deafblind people, mostly students from the Helen Keller National Center to meet President Barack Obama on Helen Keller’s birthday. The occassion marked Deafblind Awareness Month in June.
His website, http://www.jacorning.info , has developed a very important survey for the Deafblind public to fill out.
You need to go to this link http://www.jacorning.info/survey.html to enter your name and email address, and by November 15th, they’ll e-mail you the survey.
Read more info on the website for further details on the survey, but here’s an idea (excerpt from the website)
