The Brookline Commission on Disability has put together this display in honor of Disability Pride Month, with assistance from the Perkins Library.
Devices like “Talking Books,” an Ear Horn, a Brailler, and a Shake-Awake Alarm are all displayed to showcase how different devices and advancements in technology have assisted people who are Blind and Deaf with communication and with activities of daily living.
