Our theme this month is education, and today we will talk about Teachers of the Visually Impaired (TVI). TVIs are the leaders of the educational team for children with vision loss. They provide guidance to the other members of the team, and provide assessments and referrals as needed. They are responsible for teaching the skills that children with vision loss need to know.
I'm excited to see it today, even though it won't be a total eclipse here. I hope everyone who wants to see it will be able to do so.
Enjoy it and stay safe!
Every Friday, we focus on people who are living wonderful lives with visual impairments.
If you've had enough bad news this week, we have some good news for you. Take a look at these three stories.
Every month, we celebrate people who are or were connected with vision loss.
This month, we are celebrating two birthdays.
If you are excited about the upcoming eclipse, and want to share the experience with someone who reads braille, NASA has just the book for you. It's about eclipses, and has tactile graphics in addition to the braille text. It looks really interesting!
