A picture of Mary VerlindeCongratulations to Mary Verlinde (Region 7 & 8) Regional Coordinator for NDVS/SB. She recently tested for the Perkins-Roman CVI Range Endorsement and is now among fewer than 150 professionals nationwide with this credential.  CVI is the leading cause of visual impairment in the United States currently and happens to be associated with some of the most significant challenges for educators to understand. This is a nice step forward for North Dakota and we hope it leads to more people seeking this training and the endorsement.

It always seems at NDVS/SB that every spring gets busier but perhaps that is just our perception. Either way, the first few months of 2019 have been a whirlwind of activity.
