A mean comment about glasses, getting hit by a ball in PE, an inaccessible science graphic, or an embarrassing missed social cue are examples of experiences that might trigger the nervous systems of students and their families. For health and well-being, activated nervous systems need to return to a state of calm. When stress accumulates or trauma is unprocessed, mental health becomes compromised. This Coffee Talk explores the stress-trauma continuum in the context of visual impairment, potential effects on students and their families, and strategies for providing support.

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.
