Southwest Ohio Sensory Safari Spends The Day With The Visually Impaired

A dozen club volunteers turn out to help eight blind and visually impaired children and ten blind and visually impaired adults interact with the Sensory Safari.  The group worked chapter volunteers over with non-stop questions about the animals and themselves.  One of our AWLS alumni worked with a blind autistic boy who at first would not touch any animal.  Thirty minutes later, he was eagerly following her to the next animal and touching every display.  His mother, with tears in her eyes, commented that this was a much better experience for him than going to the zoo.
