Instructing students who are blind or visually impaired is rewarding but can also present challenges. Within this section, you will find strategies for teaching students who are blind or visually impaired.
Teaching in thematic units can help a student make connections between and among the topics of instruction that are discussed. Units expand vocabulary, concepts, and skills beyond those which can be experienced incidentally in daily routines or in isolation.
The iPad can be a wonderful instructional tool for Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments to use in conjunction with other, more traditional, instructional strategies. This page lists ways TVI’s can use iPads as instructional tools.
This page outlines strategies for teaching the ECC. It is a closed page that is available to those who have purchased the Complete Set as a way of saying Thank You and providing additional information and materials that support activities within the TVI's Guide to Teaching the ECC.
I have created additional printable resources, different from the Free Printables page, to supplement the TVI's Guide to Teaching the ECC. Additional resources currently include Thematic Quotes & Sayings Keyboarding and Braille Fluency Worksheets, Alphabet Picture Lotto Cards, Word Family Cards, Word Family Study print/braille worksheets, Job Task List, and a Unit Materials Checklist.
This page, available to those who have purchased the TVI's Guide Complete Set, provides suggestions for preparing for upcoming units.
Having students write and read song lyrics is a fun way to build braille literacy for students who love music! I've created song playlists on Spotify to make the incorporation of songs a part of instruction.
