On May 19, 2016, the titles “Your voice, My eyes” and “Cultural volunteers walked into Fushun Special Education School ” were applied respectively by Fushun Daily and Fushun Evening to report a series of activities that volunteer society from Foreign language department of our school ,named “brilliance of fireflies” , which initiated conducted reading for blind children in Fushun Special Education School.

Your voice, My eyes.
From April, the 9th Reading Festival activities has been carried out. All readers in the city are enjoying the happiness of reading. The blind also took an active part in the activities, listening the sound of reading and teaching of the volunteers ,sharing what they learned with them, feeling the love and warmth from the big family of our society.
Learning from each other and making progress together.
May 18th, Fushun Library summoned 11 cultural volunteers to carry out “face to face reading” activity in Fushun Special Education School.
These 11 volunteers are all students from LiaoNing ShiHua University. On that day, they prepared varied courses for the 9 blind children, including language speaking, book recommending, reciting, interesting news and so on. In the classroom, Guo Zirong, a sophomore student , was surprised by the blind children’s performance. “ Initially, we prepared to teach and guide them because they are much younger than us , but to our amazement, the child who I was guiding knew a lot about literature and traditional Chinese herbal medicine.Now we were learning from each other and making progress together.” He said.
Guo Zirong’s study partner was Chen Yanmin of Grade 10. Having learned that the volunteers were coming, he was very excited and said: “ We lived in our own circle with few friends, but these elder brothers and elder sisters made us learn a lot about the outside world through communicating.
In 2015, Fushun Library started a cultural volunteers team, which now boasts more than 50 cultural volunteers most of whom are college students, anchorpersons, staff members from institutions and doctors. As a minor activity of the Reading Festival activities, the face to face reading activity oriented to blind children has been carried out for 5 times. Sometimes the professional would come and help children with their vocal music and recitation, and sometimes college students would come and communicate with them in pairs.
Much importance has been attached to knowledge competition among the blind.
The Blind Association holds knowledge competition for the blind every year, this year, it became a part of the reading festival.
On May 15th , the Disabled day, about 70 blind people joined the competition in front of their computers. In the competition, the host spoke out 120 questions and the participants raced to be the first to answer the questions. Finally, according to their respective grades, 25 people, including the first, second, third prize winners and trophy winners were selected out. Compared with the previous years, there have been some changes this year because of the participation of the blind in the Reading Festival. Fushun Disabled Federation allocated special funds for the activity. On topic setting, questions related to Fushun history ,culture, geography , local customs and previous reading festival topics were added specially.
Dong Yuming, vice chairman of Fushun Disabled Federation and writer, established Fushun Blind Computer Association for the blind,the only such organization in China in the year of 2010. He told the reporter that in the past, books for the blind cost a lot and the resources were limited, and this became the additional obstacles for them to read. Nowadays, electronic reading , storytelling applications and other devices bring abundant reading resources to the blind, the internet also gives them more opportunities to social contact. On the internet, they share with each other their e-book resources and exchange their understanding of different books.
