In this episode of Explorer Stories, Aira presents Hy Cohen. We hope you enjoy.
For any working parent, balancing the demands of the job with the needs to be actively involved in a home with small children can be challenging. One father of two who is a does not let blindness stand in the way of creating and sharing special moments with his first grader daughter, making memories that will last a lifetime.
Meet Hy Cohen, an Aira Explorer since July 2017 who is discovering richer visual experiences by tapping into today’s fastest growing assistive community for the blind and visually impaired.
Work at a local non-profit serving California’s San Joaquin County is full busy days that can include teaching several adaptive technologies classes, helping clients develop adaptive skills, or doing assessments for the Department of Rehabilitation and Veteran’s Administration.
So after a busy day at the office one could think Hy probably relaxes with a quiet evening at home. Right?
With a daughter in first grade, Hy is finding ways to make daddy daughter moments memorable for them both. As most parents will readily acknowledge, most seven year old kids are—-to say the least—active. And is Hy’s daughter any different?As every parent knows, life with an active seven year old is not always just a walk in the park. There are those nights when a first grader’s homework becomes the shared experience. And it is no different at the Cohen house where Hy is an active participant on homework night.
Having the sighted assistance his Aira Agent provides helps Hy engage and participate more fully in homework sessions, but doesn’t stop there. He also uses the service to enrich their shared reading sessions, creating special moments for both dad and daughter.
