The below research participant solicitation is being provided for informational purposes only. The National Federation of the Blind has no involvement in this research, but we believe that it may contribute to our research mission.

Attention blind and low vision adults experienced in playing board and card games, experts regarding games for the visually impaired or the development of the cognitive functions of the blind, blind educators, and experts with knowledge of/experience with memory games.

I am Amy Ritter, a high school senior at Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland who is conducting a survey titled, "Games for Visually-Impaired Children," for my approved class project in Engineering Design and Development. My team and I want to eventually create a fun and engaging game for visually impaired children aged 5-10 that will help them develop cognitive functions such as memory skills. Our team will use this information with the engineering design process to design a real product that can be used in classrooms or at home. Since our target audience is visually impaired children, we need to know what features can be accessible for them. We are advocating the improvement of the children's cognitive skills so that they can use these skills independently later in life.

If you are interested in participating, and at least 18 years of age, please go to this link: https://tinyurl.com/Game-VI-Survey<https://tinyurl.com/Game-VI-Survey> and fill out the survey. There is no compensation for your participation; however, your cooperation is much appreciated. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at my email: amyjoychina at gmail.com<mailto:amyjoychina at gmail.com>. Thank you for your time!
