I'll check into it. We live in Maryland, I wonder if they would take someone from the East Coast. Guess I'll find out.

It pays for your daughter to check with a different provider. I have a similar problem. In the past, I was told by DVR that I had too much vision and that they couldn't pay for readers, reading equipment, etc. Now, I am in graduate school and am doing fine without their help.

I would strongly suggest that your daughter contact Guide Dogs for the Blind and discuss this with them. I believe it a good idea to talk with more than one guide provider just as you would for medical treatments. She can find a great deal of info and contact info on their website at: www.guidedogs.com <http://www.guidedogs.com/> I wish your daughter the best of luck. ----- Original Message ----- From: Monica <mailto:mcortada@xxxxxxxxxxx> Cortada To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, April 10, 2007 6:22 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] OT: Guide Dogs My daughter was turned down for a guide dog from the Seeing Eye because they felt she has too much vision to safely use a guide dog. She is devastated and my heart breaks for her. I know there are several members of this list who work with and know much more than I do about training and working with guide dogs. I'm hoping some of you kind people will email me off list. I'd like to ask whether it makes sense to apply elsewhere. I'd also like the names of some books about training Guide Dogs so my daughter can better accept the rejection though understanding. She's in her second year college. I think the administration at the small liberal arts college she attends in Pennsylvania are going to be disappointed. They were so excited about supporting her that they'd already set aside a rare single room in a dorm suite for her and "the dog".
