Summary:   DEAR LINGUISTLIST

A WHILE BACK YOU KINDLY POSTED A REQUEST I HAD FOR ADVICE IN TEACHING BLIND
STUDENTS LINGUISTICS. I HAD A NUMBER OF RESPONSES - PEOPLE REALLY WERE
HELPFUL. I WAS WONDERING WHETHER THIS COULD SOMEHOW BE USED AS A RESOURCE
ON YOUR LIST. I HAVE RESPONSES FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE TAUGHT BLIND STUDENTS
AND STUDENTS WITH VISUAL IMPAIREMENT, AS WELL AS FROM BLIND LINGUISTICS
STUDENTS AND LINGUISTS I HAVE NOT CONTACTED THE AUTHORS ABOUT USING THEIR
INFORMATION, BUT DON'T SEE TOO MANY HASSLES ABOUT THIS. ALL THE BEST, AND
THANKS FOR THE GREAT WORK. THE BEST NEWSGROUP BY FAR!!
