Educational Needs of Students with Visual Impairments: An Introduction


What does a school district need to know about the needs of students who are blind or visually impaired?

This group of self-paced tutorials has been developed for school district administrators, teachers, and others who support students with visual impairments. Educators who are working with students with visual impairments for the first time need to understand their unique educational needs, and the legal expectations of what the school will provide.

Participants may start and stop this 64-credit collection as schedules allow – tutorial enrollment never expires! Districts may also elect to purchase 1 enrollment and take an internal training approach to this material.
