Subject: [NCLB] The PDRIB Post, Spring 2013 Edition

Welcome to the PDRIB Post

The PDRIB post is a quarterly publication of the Professional Development and Research Institute on Blindness. The newsletters contain news and information on our two master’s degree programs in Orientation and Mobility and Teaching Blind Students. It also contains news and updates from the National Blindness Professional Certification Board (NBPCB), an entity to certify professionals who work with the blind. Currently the NBPCB has two certification programs, the National Orientation and Mobility Certification (NOMC) and the National Certification in Literary Braille (NCLB). The newsletter will showcase those who have received both of these certifications and will announce upcoming test dates. You will also hear quarterly from Dr. Edward Bell, director of the PDRIB on things going on at the institute. Other details featured in the PDRIB Post include a calendar of events, research updates, book reviews and a list of our graduates.
To receive this publication through email or to submit ideas for upcoming newsletters, contact Edward Bell at
