Ages 8-13: Virtual Elementary is a chance to socially connect during a time of physical distancing. We invite students with visual impairments, ages 8-13, to engage all of their senses while connecting with peers and learning valuable skills. Our aim is to help improve interpersonal communication skills, self-esteem and teamwork. Participants will engage in a variety of exciting activities and projects, including: Kitchen Chemistry, O&M Scavenger Hunt, Radio, and more! Students will use materials around their house, as well as their imagination and teamwork, to build on skills and make new memories and friendships.
Technical Requirements: Access to technology with internet connection and a valid e-mail address to connect with the Zoom platform. Course materials will be sent and received electronically using e-mail and Google Drive.
This virtual program targets the following ECC skills:
- Orientation & Mobility Skills
- Social Interaction Skills

- Communication Skills
Each session will run from 3PM - 4PM (Mon. - Fri.)
