University of Northern Colorado Assistive Technology Survey
I am conducting a survey for teachers of students with visual impairments and multiple disabilities. It is brief, including 12 mostly multiple-choice questions about educators' experiences with university assistive technology preparation as well as technology instruction to students with multiple disabilities in educational settings. If you are an educator for students with visual impairments and additional disabilities, I would appreciate your assistance and contribution to this research so much. I have included a link below with more information and the survey.
Thank you for your support,
