Perkins School for the Blind Publications has recently published "Welcoming Students with Visual Impairment to Your School": A guide for training public school personnel and families about the needs of students with vision loss.
These multi-media modules, funded by a grant from The Gibney Family Foundation, have been developed to provide vision professionals with a user-friendly resource for sharing information about students with visual impairment. Modules include:
- An overview of visual impairment
- Social skills for children and youth with visual impairments
- Orientation and Mobility
- Low Vision
