OVERBROOK SCHOOL FOR THE BLIND By Gloria A. Pfeiffer, Public Relations Overbrook School for the Blind gloria@obs.org At Overbrook School for the Blind we prepare our students, all of whom are blind or visually impaired, to have the greatest opportunity to experience active and fulfilling lives. In developing academic and other programs specifically adapted for each student, many of whom have additional challenges besides visual impairment, teams of highly qualified teachers and specialists work seamlessly to create a caring, can-do environment. Students work, play, and in some cases, live in an extraordinary set of integrated buildings carefully designed to meet the multiple needs of the students.
