What aspect of you internship have you enjoyed the most?

I've enjoyed the patient contact I've received because I've improved my communication skills and learned, first hand, the specific strategies used to teach each blindness condition. Before this experience, I had no prior knowledge of these conditions, so it has been very interesting learning all about them.
