Angel and Elizabeth will be presenting on the importance of the educational process for students who are blind or deaf-blind,  highlighting the perspectives of the appropriate instruction that is to be applied within all educational settings.  They will establish four main objectives when determining such process in public and private schools:

 

  1. Direct instruction vs consultative services
  2. Teacher technical assistance and coaching
  3. Appropriate comprehensive application of assessment to determine accommodations, services, frequency, mode of communication, and visual diagnosis
  4. Time – time spent within the instruction of education to teacher and students (plan individualized instruction)
