Session Detail

TSBVI Coffee Hour: Part 1 - Availability for learning for children with multisensory impairment & Part 2 – Being a perceptive reflective detective: a multisensory approach to assessment and learning
Hosted via Zoom on January 26th, 2021

The majority of children with deafblindness today have significant difficulties with most or all of their sensory systems, including the perception of pain, smell, taste, touch, and balance, as well as vision and hearing. Two of the senses, the proprioceptive sense and the vestibular sense, are particularly important but often ignored, and they play a key role in helping the brain to attend to the external environment. We need to know about these two senses, how they work, what might happen if they are not working properly, and what to do about it, so that we can make effective contributions to the development of attention, sociability, and functional vision and hearing.

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.
