Strategies for teaching visually impaired students
I teach a community based classroom of 9 students with multiple developmental disabilities. Four of my students have Down's, one has Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy, two are intellectually disabled (actually they all are but these two have no other diagnoses), two are other health impaired due to brain trauma and one of these is visually impaired also. My visually impaired student entered my classroom after Christmas last year. Having never taught a vi student, I am always looking for strategies to include her in every subject area. Hoping to network with other special educators on this site.
