One of our initiatives this year in the outreach department is to explore listening as a focus topic.
Those of us in the VI field understand the importance of listening for individuals who are visual impairment, yet it is a topic about which very little has been written.
As part of this initiative, we are forming a study group to read and discuss a new book Learning to Listen Listening to Learn edited by Lizabeth Barclay from AFB (American Foundation for the Blind) Press.
We also plan on participating in the Learning to Listen Listening to Learn webinar series through AFB (American Foundation for the Blind). If you would like to join in these webinars, here is a link to the information. AFB webinars
So, stay tuned and we will periodically post comments and suggestions as we delve into this resource and topic.
