Riley’s Transition to Middle School Video

Watch this advocacy video created by a rising middle school student and her friends!

Transitioning to a new school and tired of all those questions about blindness? Here is a fun way to educate teachers and peers!

The goals for this video were to:

  1. Introduce Riley to students and staff at the new school.
  2. Answer frequently asked questions.
  3. Teach basic blindness protocol.
  4. Introduce ISD staff that will be working in the building.

We had a ton of fun creating this! It was shared at the open house and at orientation at the school. I’m happy to report that it is already working! It’s made a big difference in how students and staff interact.
