Learning Ally: Past, Present and Future

Categories: Uncategorized

This 5-minute pictorial narrative shares the fascinating history of Learning Ally -- beginning in 1948 when it was a volunteer-driven cause known as Recording for the Blind, inspired by the vision of Anne T. Macdonald. It follows RFB's progression from serving blinded World War II veterans toward making reading and education accessible for an ever-expanding community of people with visual, learning and physical disabilities. Keeping pace with technology evolving from recorded books on tape to CDs and internet downloads, the organization now known as Learning Ally has remained true to its original mission -- celebrated in public each year at its National Achievement Awards in Washington, DC.
