Sue Sullivan, an amazing TVI at Perkins School for the Blind, shared the following list of Math resources. This resource, originally shared on Facebook, is reposted with permission on Paths to Technology. Here is what Sue said:

You may have heard, Perkins School for the Blind, and many of the schools in Massachusetts have closed for up to 4 weeks. I did my best to pull together a list of math games for parents to play at home with their students. I looked for games that are fun for a family to play, not a classroom activity, and that were accessible or could be easily adapted for our students.

All ages

Math & Literature picture books/stories

Literature is the ideal vehicle to help students see the importance of numbers in their daily lives.

In response to the wave of K-12 school closures across the United States due to COVID-19, a few concerned teachers of the blind and advocates got together to organize a free, homework help hotline for blind/visually impaired students. Check out the details below, and share with others.

National Homework Hotline for Blind/Visually Impaired Students (NHH-BVI)

What: Homework telephone hotline for blind/vision impaired students in grades K-12 experiencing emergency school closures due to COVID-19.

Areas of hotline help include: navigating accessible websites with JAWS, Nemeth and literary braille reading and writing, navigating tablet/laptop using JAWS and Over, and using refreshable braille display.

*The hotline does not provide tutoring in non-Expanded Core Curriculum content areas

When: Tues -Thurs, 3:30pm – 8pm EST, March 17- April 16, 2020 (*end date may be adjusted based on school closure developments)

How: Students submit a support request via email and receive a call-back during the designated NHH-BVI times.

Who: NHH-BVI helpers are experienced TVIs and blind mentors who want to help ensure that blind/vi students can access and complete their remote learning assignments

For more info, and to request an initial NHH-BVI support call, please email [email protected].
