George Binder, Assistive Technology
May 24, 2012
George Binder, orientation and mobility specialist, retired after spending 22 years with APS in the section of Visual Impairments. He was often seen on the streets of Albuquerque with students to watch their skills and supervise their safety. Sometimes citizens expressed concern that he was following a child, but he always had a good sense of humor (and an APS badge) when he explained his position.
George has been very active with foreign exchange students who come to Albuquerque. He has traveled to various countries including China, Mexico and Turkey, to teach English or to work as a consultant for orientation and mobility. He continues to travel extensively.
