Welcome to the home of the Wisconsin Association of Blind Students.

Our Mission:

The mission of the National Federation of the Blind is to achieve widespread emotional acceptance and intellectual understanding that the real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight but the misconceptions and lack of information which exist. We do this by bringing blind people together to share successes, to support each other in times of failure, and to create imaginative solutions.


This web page provides information about The Wisconsin Association of Blind Students (WABS), its leadership, and some resources about blindness for both blind and sighted individuals. If you are interested in learning about blindness, we offer our home on the web and our organization as a source of information and positive attitudes.
