SEE/HEAR, published for the last 11 years by the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in collaboration with the DARS Division for Blind Services, has a new look and a new name! We hope you enjoy the first issue of TX SenseAbilities.

Formerly SEE/HEAR - A collaborative effort of the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired and DARS Division for Blind Services

Editor's Note: This issue marks the end of an era, and the beginning of a new tradition - a time to say farewell to SEE/HEAR, and welcome to the first issue of TX SenseAbiltiies.

SEE/HEAR was formed in 1996 as a merger of two newsletters published by the Outreach Program at Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI): P.S.NEWS!!!, edited by Kate Moss; and Visions, edited by the late Sue Currey. At that time TSBVI secured a collaborative partner for publishing and distributing the new publication, the Texas Commission for the Blind (TCB), now the DARS Division for Blind Services (DBS). TSBVI and DBS will continue this partnership in the future with our new TX SenseAbilities.

Kate Moss guided SEE/HEAR through the years as it evolved from a small project newsletter to a quarterly publication with 40 pages of personal and family stories, followed by information and insights from leaders in the fields of visual impairments and deafblindness. As the publication grew, Kate formed an editorial staff, which will continue to work on this new venture. For the last few years, I have enjoyed working with Kate as co-editor of SEE/HEAR, and plan to regularly seek her advice as we move forward with TX SenseAbilities.

We all look forward to providing an interesting and informative publication. Please let us know how we can continue to make it a useful resource for you.
