Texas Sensory Support Network (TxSSN): "Reading Connections" Book Study Online - 28697

Literacy is a key factor for student success in school and life. As teachers of students with visual impairments (TVIs), it is challenging to provide great instruction in braille, visual efficiency with optical devices or other assistive technology, and teach using best practices in reading and writing in partnership with general education teachers. Through this study of "Reading Connections: Strategies for Teaching Students with Visual Impairments" by Kamei-Hannan and Ricci, participants will review components of reading instruction and best practices for teaching these components to students who read braille or large print. Discussion and application activities will take place via Canvas, a platform for online learning from October 1 - December 13, 2021. A copy of the book will be provided to TVIs serving students with visual impairments in a Texas LEA.
