App Designed to Help Blind or Visually Impaired Youth4to24 is a free app available for iPhone and Android users to help young people with vision loss excel in life. The app is designed to help blind and visually impaired youth and parents understand what they are capable of as far as employment goes. While most young people living with vision loss are likely to pursue post-secondary education, they are less likely to land jobs in adulthood. 4to24 could bridge the gap between college and careers. The app was created by Mississippi State's National Research and Training Center on Blindness and Low Vision (NRTC).
"For kids who are blind or have low vision, we believe one of the most important things is for their mom or dad to know what their child is capable of," said Karla Antonelli, a research scientist for NRTC. "The 4to24 app gives parents the power of that knowledge so they can support and advocate for their children as they grow."
