Title: Instructional Strategies for VI Students Under the Developmental Age of 3

Presented by Kate Hurst


Description:

In this training Kate Hurst focuses on strategies for learning and instruction when the child or student with visual impairment or deafblindness is under the developmental age of 3 years. Assessment and programming that is effective for students who are primarily in the sensory-motor stage of development may seem hard to come by, but there are many tried and true approaches to use for individuals at this stage, no matter their chronological age. A discussion of specific strategies suggested by Dr. van Dijk, Lilli Nielsen, and Barbara Miles, as well as resources are shared.
