Routines Based Instruction, Collaboration in the School and Home Settings

July 29, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm EDT

Description: Distance Learning has challenged teachers of the visually impaired and parents of learners with Visual and Multiple Disabilities to adapt and adjust to a new normal. These learners may be the most at risk for regression and disruptive behaviors due to a lack of coherence and understanding of changes in their daily activities.

Millie Smith, author of APH’s Sensory Learning Kit, and Stacey Chambers, a TVI colleague, have recently published in the Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness on the effectiveness of routines-based intervention for sensorimotor learners. Millie and Stacey will share insight and practical strategies for teachers and parents to utilize routines-based instruction in the classroom and home settings, both during “distance learning” and beyond.

Instructors: Millie Smith, Vision Consultant and TVI and APH Consultant; Stacey Chambers, Vision Consultant and TVI at Coppell ISD

Primary Core or ECC Area: Compensatory (concept development)

Target Audience: TVIs and families of learners with Visual and Multiple Impairments

Pre-requisite Knowledge: none

Lesson Plan Goal: Participants will gain a greater understanding of routines-based instruction and its application in the classroom and home settings.

Learning Objectives: 1. Share findings of recently published JVIB research study on the value of routines-based instruction for learners with MVI; 2. Share the typical process for scripting and perfecting a routine, including the key steps of assessment, team collaboration for scripting steps, embedding IEP goals, and ongoing progress monitoring; 3.
