Transition skills start EARLY! This valuable resource begins at age 4 and is designed specifically for parents of students who are blind or low vision. Created by Mississippi State University’s National Research and Training Center on Blindness and Low vision (NRTC), this free app is designed for parents of children ages 4-24 and for youth with visual impairments ages 16-24. 4to24 provides information, activities, and links to resources that progress with your child. The app focuses on building progressive skills for future employment and for independent living. Set your child up for success with this timely resource!
Modules are self-paced – without deadlines!
Create an account on the app by registering as a new user. Complete the basic checklist of skills or experiences that your child has already accomplished and the app will start at the correct level. YOU choose which topics/modules you want to start with! The app tracks the child’s progress and provides updated topics/modules as activities are completed.
