Topic: Universal Design for Learning Considerations for Providing Instruction in Home and School Settings for Blind and Visually Impaired Students
Time: 3:30pm to 4:30pm PST
Presenters: Lauren Lieberman, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Institute of Movement Studies for Individuals with Visual Impairments & Molly Armstrong, Adaptive Physical Education Teacher at CSB
Incorporating students who are blind or low vision into your physical education class and activities is easier than you think. It starts with giving them the opportunity to fail or even the risk of getting hurt. Allowing students, the opportunity to try something with appropriate accommodations provides them the Dignity of Risk that will improve their self-determination and self-esteem. This presentation will focus on opportunities for kids with visual impairments to participate in Universally Designed P.E. or A.P.E. classes, build confidence, and get fit. Easy accommodations will be discussed to provide access in a general education environment or adapted setting. This discussion focuses on the ability of educators, whether TVI’s, O&M’s, A.P.E teachers, or mainstream P.E. teachers to become change agents in the education of youth with visual impairments.
