Multiple Disabilities Resources

In addition to blindness or visual impairment, a child may have additional disabilities, such as cognitive, developmental, hearing, or mobility impairments.

In this section, families and educators will find introductions to the educational needs of these students, as well as best practice and policy overviews.
