Students who are blind or visually impaired will most likely need instructional adaptations to many if not all areas of the curriculum. When instructing students, it can be helpful to break tasks into parts and provide wait time to allow independence and support when needed. Allow the student to learn through mistakes. As stated in the Guiding Principles section, teach within the natural environments and within the context of the activities, taking advantage of teachable moments. The following are links to pages that provide suggestions on adaptations to instruction.
If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.
