Connecting your Families at Home with the Resources They Need to Thrive
June 3, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDTFree
Description: Presented by the APH ConnectCenter, this webinar will focus on three parents of visually impaired children as they navigate their lives through the COVID-19 era as parents, teachers, employees, entertainers, physical educators, and social committees. What challenges have they faced transitioning to both working from home and teaching their kids? How are they meeting the accessibility needs of a child with a visual impairment? What techniques have they used to incorporate learning at home with physical ed., Orientation and mobility, and socialization? What resources have they used to ensure that their child’s accessibility needs are being met? And in what areas do they continue to struggle? What products and services are you missing that are hard to come by or remain unattainable? We will ask these questions and more while also taking questions from our audience. Teachers are invited!
