Working with Students Who are Visually Impaired

Working with Students Who are Visually Impaired:

This training is geared toward a variety of educators working with PreK-12th grade students who are visually impaired/blind in an array of educational settings. The training involves an engaging and informative PowerPoint that informs the audience on the range of vision loss that may impact a child or teen and introduces participants to best practices for interacting and engaging with these students in their educational settings. 

Participants will learn general strategies on how to quickly adapt the environment, materials, and their instruction to be more accessible for the student and to facilitate increased engagement of students. 

Finally, participants will be instructed in Human Guide and can participate in an under-blindfold activity with a partner to practice the technique.  All participants will receive a unique Cleveland Sight Center pen & folder with helpful resources to reference after the training.
