The Post-Journal

CBA Vision Rehabilitation Services, BOCES and The Jamestown Savings Bank Arena collaborated to make the Progressive Skating & Gymnastics Spectacular a reality for a young girl with vision limitations. CBA Vision Rehabilitation Services provided the Acrobat, an LCD video magnification tool that allows individuals with low vision to magnify and view objects that are near or far on a large 19-inch or 22-inch full-color screen. Jeanne Anderson, a vision rehabilitation teacher with BOCES, and Kurt Silcott of the ice arena worked with Lisa Goodell to make the necessary accommodations to make this an unforgettable night of skating, gymnastics and music.
