Stay connected with LightHouse by helping us update our Student, TVI, and O&M records from June 1 through September 1
Bop It! Twist It! Pull It and Pass it! For 25 years, this simple and sassy game has brought joy, connection, and entertainment to so many families with its simple audible prompts. For sighted, low vision and blind people of all ages, Bop It has been an unexpected and not-so-quiet game that is more than fun – It is a gateway to making friends and memories with a game that does not require sight or accommodations to play. Last year, Bop It turned twenty-five and the inventor, Dan Klitsner, reached out to the LightHouse with some special opportunities and lots of the new Bop It Buttons!
We want to share the Bop It wealth! The LightHouse Youth Programs Team is starting an initiative to update our student and teacher contact records, with the additional hope of connecting with new blind and low vision youth who may not be aware of the cool things we do. We’re giving away FREE Bop It Buttons to all blind and low vision students in the K-12 system and TVI or O&M teachers who help us update our records. TVI / O&M instructors complete the Teacher Form, and each of the students who they work with complete the Student Form (be sure students include the name of their TVI / O&M instructor!)
At the end of the initiative (or once all the Bop Its have been claimed!) the Youth Programs Team will mail a package of Bop It Buttons to the TVI and O&M instructors who worked with their students to sign up. There’ll be Bop It for each student, as well as a few extras for the teachers to distribute as they please.
