Having visited the Bronx for the first time at mile 20 of the marathon, Nureddin returned a second and third time to visit the New York Institute for Special Education and the Lavelle School for the Blind. He toured both schools, meeting faculty and students, and learned about each school’s assistive technology and teaching methodologies.
