Receiving a personalized letter from Santa brings joy to countless children. But what happens to children with visual disabilities? Those children that are not capable of seeing to be able to read their letter from Santa are often left out of feeling the magic and joy that those letters often bring. Here is how one company, T Base Communications, is helping visually impaired children to receive a letter from Santa in braille.

Individuals with disabilities can achieve their dreams and be successful if they are presented with the opportunity to do so. Her disability does not hinder her ability to be a great teacher. It is a matter of overcoming the limits, boundaries, and stereotypes that society has placed on them.

Argentina's first teacher with Down syndrome had to shatter stereotypes to achieve her dream. She is living proof that her disability is no impediment to being a great educator.

Even at a young age - students with hidden disabilities have a hard time expressing what they need and how they can learn better. It doesn't stop when they get to college. If you are a student or have a student with a disability, our office is here to help.

With a new school year starting, over 60 Brain Highways kids collaborated to write a “Dear Teacher” letter—which they then turned into a short (under two minutes) “Dear Teacher” video. School does greatly influence how kids are viewed by others and how they view themselves. So, while it may take years to change laws or how health care addresses mental health issues, these kids hope their message will be shared with as many educators as possible—knowing that teachers can truly make a huge difference, starting TODAY. www.facebook.com/kidswhynotcampaign

In the eleventh month, on the eleventh day, during the eleventh hour an armistice was declared. President Woodrow Wilson declared in 1919 that this day would be known as "Armistice Day." Today we know it as "Veteran's Day." If you do nothing else this week, at least thank a veteran.
