Website, Webinars, Guide, and Online Modules


kayden essef board croppedJanuary 31, 2019

Texas School for the Blind & Visually Impaired

James C. Durkel Conference Center 

This workshop is designed for ESC Consultants who want to provide training and support on how to implement Active Learning as designed by Dr. Lilli Nielsen of Denmark.  It is also open to others who are providing training on this topic. We strongly recommend that you have previous training on Active Learning.

This workshop will not provide instruction on Active Learning principles, techniques or strategies. Instead it will provide an overview to utilizing specific training materials (Active Learning Space website, Active Learning modules, Active Learning: Train-the-Trainer manual) to provide training to others. 

The Active Learning approach emphasizes that all individuals learn best by active participation.  All activity, especially in the earliest stages of development, actually "wires our brains" and establishes critical foundational concepts and skills necessary for all future learning.  

Individuals with multiple disabilities (cerebral palsy, visual impairment, cognitive impairment, autism, hearing impairment, etc.) are at great risk from developing reliance on others to interact with the world around them.  They learn to be a passive rather than active participant, waiting for adults to provide activity rather than seeking it out on their own.  Children and adults with special needs often develop stereotypical or aggressive behaviors in order to communicate with others or cope within the environments in which they are placed.  Active Learning recognizes that every learner with special needs is unique.  The programming and intervention for facilitating learning must reflect this individuality.  Active Learning emphasizes creating a developmentally appropriate and enriched environment so that children and adults with multiple special needs become active learners.  

Learning Objectives

Participants in this training will learn how to use the content provided on the Active Learning Space website to train individuals in the appropriate use of Active Learning.

Participants will learn how to provide face-to-face and flipped learning activities utilizing the Active Learning Space website, online modules and ready-made Powerpoints with accompanying activities to provide training.

This training is not meant to train individuals on Active Learning, but rather to show them how to use materials from the Active Learning Space website and modules to provide training for others. 

It is recommended that participants have some familiarity with Dr. Nielsen’s Active Learning approach. Participants who are not familiar with this content are encouraged to complete the Active Learning Principles module or review the contents of the website before attending this workshop. They may also want to consider attending the June 2019 Active Learning Conference rather than this workshop.  Information about that event which is sponsored  by Region 10 Education Service Center may be found on their website.

Registration

This workshop targets individuals who are ESC Consultants and part of the Low Incidence Disabilities network or Statewide Leadership for Blind or Visually Impaired network or other related networks. They will pay a discounted registration fee of $12 when using the discount code available from their network leads.

Out-of-state participants and others must pay a registration fee of $50.

Registration costs include a working lunch, a hard-copy manual, and access to electronic versions of all Powerpoints and the manual.

Seating is limited to 50 individuals. Thirty-five (35) of these seats are reserved for ESC Consultants and fifteen (15) seats being allotted to non-ESC staff. 

Registration ends January 18, 2019. You may register now and pay later if using a check or purchase order. Payment with a credit card is immediate.  You may cancel up to January 25th without penalty. After that time you may be charged a $25 cancellation fee.

Emotional Connection for Human Health and Happiness

Original webcast date: 3/4/2017
Description: Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk, Founder of the connected baby and Research Professor at the University of Dundee, Scotland. What does emotional connection during infancy look like, and why are early experiences so important to later human functioning? In this informal workshop, Suzanne will use video footage of DeafBlind and non-DeafBlind infants to illuminate patterns of emotional exchange, exploring the biological consequences these early patterns hold for later development. This platform will leave us well placed to think more deeply about how the early life experiences of DeafBlind people, usually unknown and unconsidered, go on to affect the way they relate to practitioners, care-givers and families later in childhood and adulthood.

SymposiumLogo2019 Texas DeafBlind Symposium: Resonance

February 22-23, 2019

Austin, TX

 

The presentation of awards to individuals whose efforts have made a significant contribution to the field of deafblindness and/or who have contributed to improving the lives of Texans with deafblindness is one of the highlights of the Texas Symposium on DeafBlindness.   

With our theme of "Resonance" in mind the following family members, paraprofessionals and professionals were nominated because they exhibit those qualities of developing security and attachment for early communicators and who demonstrate the skills of building relationships that support and enhance the lives of individuals with DeafBlindness. Please take time to congratulate these individuals!

JacquelineIzaguirreTrail Blazer Award

This award is given to a family member(s) who has, through their advocacy or efforts on behalf of their family member with DeafBlindness, blazed a trail that has made it easier for other families who follow. This year’s recipient is Jacqueline Izaguirre from Harker Heights, Texas.

Jacqueline, the proud mother of Patsy and her two brothers, likes to say that she "has been following Patsy's lead for 31 years." In 1990 she joined DBMAT, and a year later worked with staff at the Regional Day School for the Deaf to obtain one of the first classroom interveners in Texas for Patsy. As a member of the National Coalition for DeafBlind she served as an advocate in Austin and Washington D.C. seeking to have intervener services written into law. She has also served on the NFADB board, and is a founding member and president of the DeafBlind Camp of Texas.

 

RustyAlfordRobbie Blaha Intervener Award

This award is given to an intervener who has demonstrated excellence in their role of support to a child with DeafBlindness within the educational setting and whose efforts have contributed to the success of the intervener model in Texas. This year’s recipient is Rusty Alford from Cypress-Fairbanks, Texas.

Rusty has been serving in the educational field for nearly twelve years. He served for one year as a paraprofessional and another six years as a certified interpreter. For the past five years Rusty has served as an intervenor with Cy-Fair ISD. According to Rusty, despite his various experiences working in the educational field, "the last 5 have been my favorite, working alongside individuals who are DeafBlind."

  

AneishaWaugh1Community Intervener Award

This is the first time this award is being presented.  It is given to an intervener working outside of the educational setting who demonstrates excellence in their role of support to an individual with DeafBlindness and whose efforts have contributed to the success of the intervener model in Texas. This year’s recipient is Aneisha Waugh from Spring, Texas.

Aneisha has been working with individuals who are DeafBind for over 14 years. Her passion for work in the field of DeafBlindness led her to complete the coursework from Utah State University where she received the national intervener credential.  Aneisha is proud to be a certified intervener and says of her work with individuals who are DeafBlind, "I love working with both adults and children who are Deafblind. I enjoy building a bridge for communication, helping them gain access to environmental information, and developing a trustful interactive relationship with them."

 

KayceeBennettMarty Murrell Excellence in Education Award

This award is given to a professional in education who has made a long-term commitment to excellence in education for Texas students with DeafBlindness. This year’s award is given to Kaycee Bennett from Arlington, Texas.

Kaycee Bennett currently serves as Auditory Impairment Specialist and Teacher for Students with DeafBlindness in Northwest ISD. Her background in Deaf Education led her to support her passion of working with students with DeafBlindness and has given her a unique perspective in the field.  She loves creating better programming access and communication for these students and the staff supporting them. Her formal education in DeafBlindness has taught her many things, but she has learned the most from her students and their families!

  

McCormickAnn Silverrain Award

This award is given to any individual who has made an extraordinary commitment to improving the lives of individuals with DeafBlindness in Texas. This year’s award is presented to Marina McCormick from Houston, Texas.

Marina McCormick, Region 4 Regional Day School Program for the Deaf (RDSPD) Coordinator, has served in education for 18 years.  Marina has supported students with DeafBlindness both as a teacher of the deaf and as a special education administrator.  She is currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Houston where her research focuses on statewide professional learning efforts and the potential impact on teachers’ confidence for supporting students with DeafBlindness.

GameOfLifeTSBVI Short-Term Programs and Outreach Programs offers a special opportunity for middle school students and their parents!

December 12- 15, 2019

 

Is the game of life a game of chance or choice? Throughout life, we all make choices and navigate roadblocks daily. Students heading into high school are faced with a number of challenges as they transition to adult life. Students with visual impairments have an added layer of learning, related to concepts such as money handling, career exploration, and socializing with peers. Together, we will develop skills in these areas while encouraging students to be leaders in their own lives.

In this weekend course, students and their parents must attend together. Students will be taught by teaching staff in Short-Term Programs while parents will attend a conference portion hosted by the Outreach department. Limited hotel lodging may be available for adults. Families are encouraged to contact their TWC and HHSC counselors for financial assistance with travel and lodging. Students will reside in the Short-Term Programs dorm free of charge. The goal is for students to understand ways that they can “step up” as they transition to adult life, while parents will learn ways to “step back,” as they support their child with this transition.

The parent program includes information about:

  • Transition planning
  • Graduation plans
  • Supporting your child in the expanded core areas at home and in the community
  • Exploring post secondary options
  • Experiences shared by other parents and students who have made this transition
  • Opportunities at Criss Cole Rehabilitation Center and the Post Secondary Programs on the TSBVI campus - Parents will be able to tour both programs.

Logistical details:

  • Students and their parents must attend together.
  • Activities for parents and for students will be in separate locations.
  • Students will be taught by staff in Short-Term Programs while parents work with Outreach Programs staff.
  • Parents are welcome beginning Thursday night, or may join in Friday.
  • Program runs through Sunday noon.
  • Limited hotel lodging may be available for adults. Families are encouraged to contact their TWC and HHSC counselors for financial assistance with travel and lodging. Students stay in the Short-Term Programs dorm at no cost to families.

Lodging and Travel Arrangements:

Parents will be contacted by Randall McAlister from our Outreach Programs to find out about your specific travel needs and to make travel arrangements for you.  

Parents will be staying at the Holiday Inn Midtown, located at 6000 Middle Fiskville Road in AustinRandall will make your hotel reservations for you after finding out what type of room you will need.  Please do not make hotel reservations on your own.

424039 140 bOther individual travel needs related to rental cars, flights, or transportation in Austin will be planned during Randall's contact with you.  If you have questions about any of your travel plans, please contact Randall at  or phone him at 512-206-9344.
