Session Detail

TSBVI Coffee Hour: 5 Literacy Activities for Blind/VI Students who are Emergent Readers and Writers
Hosted via Zoom on January 7th, 2021

This presentation is for educators and service providers who work with students of all ages who are Blind/VI with additional disabilities. Many of these students may be moving toward conventional literacy instruction, but need creative and thoughtful sensory and learning supports to get there. Megan will share and demonstrate 5 examples of Comprehensive Literacy (Erickson & Koppenhaver, 2013) activities adapted for Blind/VI students with additional disabilities: Shared Reading, Shared Writing, Independent Reading, Independent Writing, and Working with Letters and Sounds. All activities will include video demonstrations and step-by-step directions. Join us to add some motivating activities to your instructional toolbox for both distance and in-person settings as we practice the mantra: “Every child reads. Every child writes.”

Captioning will be provided, if you need anything else, please email Kaycee Bennett. Some logistics will be different with our Coffee Hours, as compared to the past, but you can expect the same commitment to providing information, discussion, and collaboration on topics important to students who are blind, visually impaired, or Deafblind.
