Perkins Outreach/ International Photograph Collection, 1978-2007, Perkins School for the Blind

The majority of this collection is comprised of Hilton/Perkins International, a program that brings services to blind, deafblind, and children with multiple disabilities in more than fifty developing countries around the world.  A variety of Perkins publications are also included - most notably, Remarkable Conversations (1999), which was published in order to address the special needs of children who communicate in nonlinguistic styles.  Additionally, the services that Perkins has brought its students have ranged from Deafblind programs; special events, such as horseback riding and holiday concerts; as well as educational programs, both for its students and teachers.
