This tutorial focuses on the various literacy adaptations, accommodations, and strategies used in classrooms for children who are deafblind. Sectioned off into four categories, the presenters will focus on the types of vision loss (total blindness, low vision, CVI) and the use of the appropriate materials. Literacy formats will include story boxes with concrete objects, tactile books, and additional accommodations and strategies. A multitude of examples of created materials will be displayed, as well as creation tips for the audience to take away to their designated area of focus.

This is a web-based, self-guided professional development activity for TVIs, VRTs, O&Ms, Parents, Teachers of the Deafblind or Severely Impaired, and Rehabilitation Specialists.
