Compensatory skills for students with a visual impairment involve the use of assistive technology, adaptations, and strategies that maximize a student’s opportunity to access information and engage with learning materials. This session will stress the importance of observation as a strategy to gather student performance information in actual settings, use this information to guide instruction and collaboration, and suggest lesson ideas for the population of students with low vision functioning in general education settings.

Session objectives include: Review strategies for collecting information through observation in general education settings. Use observation information to determine areas of need for direct instruction and collaborative consultation. Practice designing examples of direct instruction and collaborative consultation for compensatory skills. Review lesson ideas for students with low vision.

Captioning will be provided, if you need anything else, please email Kaycee Bennett. Some logistics will be different with our Coffee Hours, as compared to the past, but you can expect the same commitment to providing information, discussion, and collaboration on topics important to students who are blind, visually impaired, or Deafblind.
