Improving Education for Individuals with Visual Impairments.

Teaching Strategies for Students Who are Blind/VI with Multiple Disabilities in the Sensorimotor Stage of Development Primary tabs

The course will offer practical teaching strategies for students with visual impairments and multiple disabilities in the sensorimotor stage of development. Through lectures, videos, discussions, readings and case studies, participants will develop knowledge and skills which can be applied to their own students.
Participants will demonstrate an understanding of the unique needs of the students with visual impairments and multiple disabilities at the sensorimotor level of development and how these students can be taught meaningful routines which become a foundation for learning new concepts.
