Perkins
2014 Annual Report
Real World 101
From left: President and CEO Dave Power, Chair of the Board Corinne Grousbeck and former Chair Frederic M. Clifford
From the CEO and the Board Chair
We’re always looking for new ways to get students out
of the classroom and into the “real world” to put the skills
they’re learning to the test. But the real world isn’t just
good exposure for our students; it holds invaluable
lessons for us as educators, experts and advocates. It’s
our responsibility to stay connected with societal shifts
and in touch with the rapid pace of changing technology.
What exactly does the world look like for a person who is
blind today? What are the obstacles, and how are they
different from those encountered yesterday?
The only way to know is to get out there.
That’s why we’ve embarked on a real world curriculum of
our own. The coursework requires research and reflection
on some of the biggest challenges facing those we serve.
Transition is the first, most pressing issue. Every one of
our students deserves the chance to fulfill their potential,
no matter their personal abilities or end goals. And with
a 75 percent unemployment rate among people who are
blind in the U.S., it’s clear that much work lies ahead. We’re
embracing that statistic as a call for action, turning every
piece of life and learning at Perkins into an opportunity to
prepare. From toddlers transitioning to preschool, to young
adults planning for the future, we’re finding new ways to
embody transition in everything we do.
Literacy is another. Transitioning to the real world means
communicating with those around you – and technology
has drastically changed the way people who are blind
communicate. What do our students need to know? How
can we prepare them? To find out, we’re interviewing
young adults who are fluent in today’s digital mediums
to understand how they process information in their
daily routine, whether at home, work or school. This kind
of knowledge will benefit not only students in the U.S., but
thousands of children with multiple disabilities and visual
impairment around the globe who are learning to read, write
and communicate, thanks to our international partners.
At the heart of all this is innovation. Tackling real-world
challenges takes a willingness to revisit, reimagine and
reinvent. That’s why we’re convening proven innovators
from public and private sectors to ignite the discussion.
We want to better understand the needs of people today,
and embrace the most promising ideas as we take steps
to develop global, innovative solutions for tomorrow.
Of course, Perkins would not be the leader it is today
without the insight of the individuals who have brought
us this far. We thank C. Richard Carlson, Chair of the
Corporation, and Charles C.J. Platt, Treasurer, for their
years of service. We also acknowledge Frederic M. Clifford,
who gave six years as Board Chair and will continue to serve
Perkins. Their remarkable contributions have prepared us to
pursue the next step in the evolution of equality and access
for individuals with blindness.
Finally, we thank all of you who have embraced our
mission to make the world a better place for people who are
blind. Because of you, the real world looks more promising
every day.
Warmly,
W. David Power, President and CEO
Corinne B. Grousbeck, Chair of the Board

What is it like to be 26 and blind?
2

A
research lab. An artist’s studio. A retail outlet. Kids spend
hours dreaming about the places they want to work when
they grow up. But for far too many students with blindness
or visual impairment, that ultimate destination turns out to
be no farther than their own couch.
Every young person, no matter their abilities, deserves the chance to find their
place in the world – a chance to contribute, whether through competitive
employment, a volunteer position or otherwise. But the staggering majority
of people who are blind and unemployed in the U.S., combined with the
invisibility of this population in everyday society, proves that education
isn’t enough.
Doing more means preparing students through age 26 – a likelier point
at which these young adults are ready for the real world – despite state
financial support that ends at 22. It means prioritizing vocational training
and pursuing new community job experiences. It means coaching students
on résumé-writing and staging mock interviews with experienced adult
role models.
But we’re not stopping there. We’re hitting the sidewalks in students’
home communities, meeting employers and striking up relationships
with companies that are open-minded about hiring workers with disabilities.
We’re investigating volunteer opportunities. We’re looking for the organizations
willing to give our young people a solid chance at success, whatever their
definition of success may be.
The way we see it, we aren’t just equipping students with transition skills.
We’re getting young people ready for the world.

Transition
for the Real World
“Transition is not an event – it’s a process. It’s a
lifestyle. In the end, it’s all about students having the
training and education to make choices about what
they want to be in life. Isn’t that what every human
being wants? To make choices about their future?”
– Dorinda Rife, Superintendent and Executive Director of National Education
Programs, who has driven Perkins to make transition programming a top
priority in every campus and community classroom
6
The new Transition to Life Co-operative gives young adults
the chance to master independent living skills before moving
on to college or joining the workforce. Participants live in
apartments on the Perkins campus where they prepare their
own meals, do laundry, and manage a household budget
while also holding a job in the Greater Boston area.
At Asociacion Hellen Keller Peru, a Perkins International partner,
a bakery program teaches students who are visually impaired –
and their parents – culinary skills that can translate into careers.
Angela, a student who has Downs syndrome and low vision,
spent two years learning to bake with her mother. The pair
now sells a variety of treats to customers out of their home.
Perkins has ramped up its transition support to students in
public schools. Itinerant transition experts are coaching young
adults and their families as they anticipate college, a first job or
a volunteer opportunity, focusing on planning and networking
for the future.
At a camp for individuals with deafblindness in Thailand,
organized by Perkins International, students developed skills
that will help them live independently as adults. Teachers
helped campers manage a daily routine that included social
and vocational activities ranging from jewelry making to
selling desserts at a local market.
Perkins published The Total Life Learning curriculum, which
provides educators with goals, activities and objectives for
lessons surrounding the development of life and career skills.
The curriculum is specifically designed for students ages 3 to
22 who are blind or visually impaired, including those with
additional disabilities.
Job seekers who are blind networked with hiring managers
from 29 businesses, nonprofits and government agencies at the
third annual Job Fair for Individuals with Visual Impairments,
co-sponsored by Perkins. Employers also explored accessible
technology options for adapting the workplace, as demonstrated
by Perkins Products.

What does literacy mean today?
8
9
T
ake a moment to think about all the forms of communication
that make up your day. The alarm clock goes off. Your television
reports the morning news over breakfast. You jot down a
grocery list on a pad of paper. You scan your smartphone
for the day’s appointments.
We think of literacy as being able to read and write. For people who are
blind or visually impaired, that concept historically has been synonymous
with braille. But when you consider the changing world of communications
– and all the variables that human beings bring to it – that definition
inevitably falls short.
That’s why we’ve committed to taking a fresh look at what literacy really
means to people with disabilities today. How do we communicate? Our
own campus offers a myriad of examples of literacy: Tactile sign language.
Hand gestures. Pictorial images. What kinds of technology catalyze our
ability to communicate? Refreshable braille displays. Text-to-speech
technology. Smart GPS.
To learn more, we’re taking our questions to people living every day with
blindness and visual impairment, to observe their needs first-hand and
better understand how we can help. The answers will be enlightening.
While braille will undoubtedly remain a vital tool in the portfolio of literacy
solutions people use, we know that new research and data will help us
build a deeper understanding of literacy in the digital age – and inspire
our solutions for tomorrow.
10

“Literacy is multidimensional. It represents a critical
means by which people communicate – to interpret
and understand information, to produce and share
one’s own thoughts and ultimately connect with their
surroundings in a meaningful, satisfying way. And that
definition of literacy changes every day, as people find
new ways to engage with their world.”
–Kim Charlson, Director of the Perkins Library and President of the American
Council of the Blind, recognized globally as a trailblazing advocate for equality
and opportunity for people who are blind
Literacy
for the Real World
12
For the first time ever, students can draw and erase tactile
images using a prototype tactile sketchpad. The device, which
uses a heated stylus and waxy paper to achieve raised lines,
helps students visualize concepts like geometry and distance
in math class.
Thanks to Resources for the Blind, Inc. (RBI), a Perkins
International partner, two Filipino brothers are learning to
read and write braille. Maximo and Janmer had previously
dropped out of school due to unreliable and expensive
transportation in their home city of Meycauayan. With
assistance from RBI they are back in the classroom along
with a special education teacher trained in teaching literacy
skills to students who are visually impaired.
Ten educators and advocates from the Republic of Georgia
visited Perkins for one week in March to learn teaching and
literacy strategies for children with multiple disabilities. The
Eurasian colleagues toured Perkins’ campus, sampled new
assistive technology from Perkins Products, and learned
about transition programs and curriculum development
they will share in classrooms back home.
Perkins eLearning was honored for excellence by the Online
Learning Consortium, which selected Perkins as the winner of
the Sloan-C Effective Practice Award. The honor recognized
Perkins’ accessible online course design, which features
opportunities for participants to earn continuing education
and graduate credits.
Perkins is proud to be collaborating with other blindness
organizations to fund the development of innovative
refreshable braille technology. The objective of the project
is a refreshable braille display that can be purchased for $300,
making it more affordable for children and libraries in
developing countries.

Why is innovation important?
14
15
I
t all comes down to this moment. What can we do today to improve
the lives of the people we serve? How can we anticipate, evolve and
create a greater impact than ever before?
That’s where innovation comes in. It’s not enough to be the oldest
school for the blind in the U.S. Our challenge is to stay relevant. To
not only improve the services, ideas and tools we bring to others, but to
be a constant, positive force inspiring change and growth worldwide.
Perkins has innovated for years, from daily adaptions of lessons in our
classrooms, to the creation and evolution of the Perkins Brailler®. Today,
we’re stretching our imaginations further than ever before. We’re
collaborating with institutes of higher education to make their online
offerings more accessible for learners who are blind. We’re harnessing
the power of the Internet to make sure that every educator around the
globe – whether in a rural town or a modern metropolis – has access
to cutting-edge information that will improve the lives of the students
they serve. We’re experimenting with new programs to offer improved
vocational training and job readiness for all students.
No great leader forges ahead alone, and Perkins is no different. To aid in
this mission, we’ve launched the Innovation Advisory Board, which will
seek out the best advances in information and mobile technology,
robotics, sensory devices and even neuroscience.
There’s no telling what tomorrow holds. It’s up to us – all of us, together –
to find out.

Innovation
for the Real World
“Many people think of innovation as the next new
cool thing – the new iPad app or the next operating
system. We’re always thinking new, new, new. But
innovation can also mean using what we already have
in a whole new way. As teachers, we do this all the time
– we’re creators and we’re innovators. For every student
I work with, I always ask myself: What’s motivating for
this person? What’s meaningful, and what’s relevant?”
—Marla Runyan, assistive technology teacher in the Secondary Program, who
was diagnosed with Stargardt’s disease, a form of juvenile macular degeneration
that causes progressive vision loss, at age 9. She went on to become a threetime U.S. National champion in track and field, and is the first legally blind
athlete to qualify for the Olympic games.
18
Perkins received the 2014 Distinguished Leadership Award
from the Mass Technology Leadership Council for its pioneering
role in developing high-tech devices for people with visual
impairments. Perkins President and CEO Dave Power delivered
remarks and accepted on behalf of Perkins at a September gala.
Secondary students discovered new motivation to master
their physics lessons last spring, thanks to the monthly Radio
Perkins show “Sounds of Science.” The monthly broadcast was
a chance for students to share their knowledge on air, which
required deep understanding of the scientific concepts and
the ability to explain them to others.
Perkins awarded a $25,000 technology prize to the inventors
of Ustraap – a wristband with navigation technology that helps
people who are blind or visually impaired avoid obstacles when
traveling. This is the third year in a row that Perkins has offered
the Technology Sidecar Prize in conjunction with MassChallenge,
a global startup program and competition for entrepreneurs.
Reading has never been more innovative at the Grousbeck
Center for Students & Technology, where after-school activities
include a story featuring interactive illustrations projected on
the walls and floor. Students manipulate the images with
their hands and feet, getting involved in a good book like
never before.
Students who are deafblind have discovered new freedom
to communicate with colleagues on the job. Deafblind
Program educators are sending students to work with
the TouchChat HD iPad app, which allows them to text
to non-sign language savvy co-workers using vocabulary
customized to that particular workplace.
19
Real-world Commitment:
The Perkins-Business Partnership
It’s one thing to identify a challenge. It’s another to tackle it head-on.
But that’s exactly what 28 Greater Boston corporations did in June when they volunteered
to join the Perkins-Business Partnership, a unique collaboration committed to taking the first
steps in reversing the 75 percent unemployment rate in the U.S. among people with blindness.
They will tackle big questions: What are the obstacles stopping people who are blind from getting
jobs or contributing to the community? And what can we do to change it? Thanks to the
commitment of these proven leaders who understand what the workplace is missing, we’re
confident we have the best shot yet in identifying and setting into motion real solutions that
can make a difference for this potential-filled population.
To every individual and corporation who has chosen to stand with us: thank you for your
courage, your leadership and your insistence on equality and opportunity for individuals who
are blind. Together, we’ll take the first steps to putting this untapped pool of great employees
to work – and make the real world a place of opportunity.

Thank you
The impact Perkins has around the world can’t be measured by longitude and latitude. It’s measured by lives transformed.
By the glow of accomplishment on the face of a Perkins student. By the surge of hope felt by a family in a developing country
when their child who is blind goes to school for the first time. By the quiet confidence of a teacher of the visually impaired
who just took a Perkins eLearning webinar. By the joy Perkins Library patrons feel when they receive a shipment of braille
or digital audio books that will allow their imaginations to soar. By the pride of a teenager with low vision getting her first
paying job. By the power of literacy flowing through the fingers of an adult typing a sentence on a Perkins SMART Brailler®.
It can also be measured by the extraordinary generosity of the individuals, foundations, companies and charitable groups
who contributed to Perkins’ programs and services – and who made these success stories possible. Thanks to their support,
Perkins raised $15,955,209 in fiscal year 2014 to help people who are blind in 67 countries, as well as family members,
educators and professionals.
In the pages that follow, we acknowledge those who donated gifts, pledges and pledge payments of $500 or more.
We thank them for reaching out the hand of hope – and transforming lives around the world.
Note: Bold print in all lists recognizes five years of consecutive giving at any level.­

Where others see challenges,
the foundations, corporations,
government agencies and other
organizations that support Perkins
see possibility. That’s why they provide
restricted and unrestricted gifts, support
and on-the-ground collaborative
efforts that help people who are blind
build better futures. We thank them,
along with our implementing partners,
for investing in new opportunities for
the people we serve.

Perkins-Business
Partnership &
Vocational Placement
A job is more than just a paycheck.
It’s an opportunity to learn lifelong
lessons like teamwork, responsibility
and punctuality. That’s why we’re so
grateful to local businesses and nonprofits that offered jobs to students
in our transition programs, Outreach
Short Courses and community-based
Transition to Life Co-operative (TLC).
We also thank members of the
Perkins-Business Partnership, a
pioneering initiative with many of
the region’s best-known businesses
and nonprofits that is exploring ways
to open the job market to people who
are blind or visually impaired. Thanks
to their help and commitment, today’s
students will have a better chance to
become independent, contributing
members of society.

Perkins Possibilities Gala
The 2014 Possibilities Gala was an
unforgettable opportunity to hear,
see and feel the possibilities that are
alive at Perkins. More than 600 guests
heard it when our student chorus
joyfully performed with The Family
Stone, saw it in inspirational videos
about Perkins graduates and felt it
in the confidence and humor of our
student hosts who proudly ran the
show. Thank you to everyone who
made the Gala so memorable, and
helped raise $1.6 million to fund our
life-changing work around the world.

Challenge
Technology makes a lifelong
difference. It boosts learning, connects
families and friends and makes everything from jobs to everyday tasks more
accessible for people with visual
impairments. Recognizing this, we
expanded the Technology Challenge
to provide cutting-edge technology
to students when they leave Perkins,
so they’ll have the tools they need to
reach their full potential in life. This
initiative is off to a strong start thanks
to the generous gift made by Corinne
Grousbeck and Wycliffe Grousbeck,
Trustees of the Grousbeck Trust, in
honor of their son’s graduation. Thank
you to everyone who contributed,
and special thanks to everyone who
invested in our students’ futures at
the Gala or bid so generously in
the auction.

2013 Taste of Perkins
Mix one part mystery with a dash of
deliciousness. Add zesty guests and
some fresh, local VIP chefs. Stir in fun
and garnish with generosity. That
was the recipe for the 2013 Taste of
Perkins, our annual blindfolded food
and wine tasting event. Hundreds of

gourmet treats, while raising funds to
support critical Perkins programs. We
thank them for making a difference,

2014 Marathon Team
Blindfold Challenge Team
Every member of Perkins’ 2014 Boston
Marathon® charity team had a unique
reason for running 26.2 miles. But
they shared a common goal: to reach
the finish line and raise more than
$54,000 to fund Perkins programs.
Thanks to our runners who endured
sore feet and aching muscles to help
people with visual impairments, and
their supporters who supplied the
enthusiasm and energy that kept
them going.
The eight individuals who
represented Perkins in the 2014
Blindfold Challenge did more than
“walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.”
They boldly ran three miles while
blindfolded. In doing so, they not only
gained insight about what it’s like to
be blind, they also raised funds for
Perkins programs and services. We
thank them and their sighted guides
for inspiring us all with their
athleticism and courage.

Compassion is timeless. Members of

know that, which is why they named
Perkins as the beneficiary of a trust,
retirement plan, will, life insurance
policy or another type of deferred
giving arrangement. They’ve earned
our gratitude for making such an
enduring difference for children and
adults who are blind – today, tomorrow
and for years to come.

individuals who generously created
this and other endowments. They
don’t just believe in Perkins’ future;
they’re helping to build it.
Educational Leadership
Endowed Fund
