Fight for Sight

A mother made it her mission to improve accommodations for children with vision impairment.

When Catherine Coleman Carter's (BA '02) seventh-grader son, Atticus, was diagnosed with diplopia (double vision), his school denied him vision-disability accommodations. Without accommodations, Atticus suffered and was unable to do well in his classes. Carter made it her mission to improve disability accommodations in Maryland schools by creating and advocating for a new vision bill in Congress.
