Subject: Possibility of putting a short announcement in the Braille 
Monitor and/or Future Reflections

Hello, Dr. Tina Herzberg at the University of South Carolina Upstate 
and I are conducting a research study to learn more about the 
experiences of people ages 18 to 25 who learned braille during their 
K-12 program after they had learned to read and write using 
print.  We would like to invite these individuals to join us for an 
hour long focus group via phone.  The purpose is to help us better 
understand the transition that a person goes through when learning 
braille after having learned to read and write using print. We hope 
the information we gather can help future teachers, families, and 
individuals going through the transition.

To participate in the study one needs to fill out a very quick online 
form at 
to provide contact information.  If you wish to have the information 
in an alternative format (electronic, print, braille) please contact 
Dr. Rosenblum at 
<mailto:rosenblu at u.arizona.edu>rosenblu at u.arizona.edu.  Once your 
information is received we will then follow up with an email to set 
up the focus group.

To ask questions or learn more please contact Dr. L. Penny Rosenblum 
at <mailto:rosenblu at u.arizona.edu>rosenblu at u.arizona.edu or  520-621-1223.

Thank you,
Penny Rosenblum and Tina Herzberg
