This presentation will review common instructional myths which can affect an overarching literacy framework while going in-depth with resources and strategies specific to the area of Blind/Vision Impairment (B/VI).  The information provided will be an overview of methods and strategies used with students who are visually impaired along the continuum of learning abilities. If you are working with a student who has a visual impairment, please connect with the Teacher of the B/VI to collaborate. There may be resources that we share that can prove beneficial as ways to access technology and information.
