Many students with visual impairments and multiple disabilities learn primarily through rote memorization. As a result, they may be able to function in a set routine but often have difficulty using problem-solving techniques in new situations. This activity challenges students to verbally solve problems in everyday situations. Lessons include Concept Development, English Language Arts, and Independent Living Skills.
