ASI Day two: Parents go to class, kids go to Boston!


Day Two of the conference is well underway, and we are delighted with the program that has been put together— informative sessions for parents and professionals, and fun activities for Alström children and adults alike.

By 8:45am we had a lobby full of folks ready to get on the chartered buses to Boston, and after a few hiccups with loading, the gang departed Plymouth for a Boston tour on the “Duck Boats”— authentic World-War-2 amphibious vehicles, refitted as tour buses for the Boston area.

From there, the group has headed to the Hard Rock Cafe… lunch for 150! As of this writing, the tour should be hitting the Science and Technology Museum, where staff there have put together a great program that should be of interest both to sighted and blind alike.

Meanwhile, the parents, caregivers and professionals have been stuck indoors on this sunny New England day, for some very worthwhile sessions to learn insights around hearing, cardiovascular and respiratory issues. Throw in some social networking and experience sharing, and we’re hard-pressed to figure out which group got the better schedule for today.
