Excerpt from The Teacher of the Blind, 1932-1933: Vols. 20-21
The presence of about 50 friends Was very encouraging, especially after the unsuccessful attempt to arrange a meeting at Nottingham last autumn.
The Branch was exceedingly fortunate in securing Miss' Garaway and Mr. Starling as speakers - Miss Garaway journeying from Bristol in order to be present. Both speakers g'ave impres sions of Blind Work in America, gained while attending the Inter national Conference.
Miss Garaway dealt with matters from an educational point of view - the splendidly equipped schools, the work done in them, the future of the pupil, domestic training for girls, the use of the three kinds of arithmetic type, Brailled cubes for the little Ones, methods of teaching reading, pencil handwriting, etc.
Mr. Starling concerned himself with the problem of relief and the unemployable blind - the qualifying and disqualifying factors, homes for the deaf - blind, industrial homes for women, home work ers, technical training and industries, etc., comparison being made with English methods.
