Title or Position: 
EC teacher
Level of Students: 
Elementary blind and CVI students with multiple disabilities
About Yourself: 

This is my 16th year as an EC teacher and a couple of years ago, I started teaching 2 young boys, one with CVI and multiple disabilities and another boy who is both blind and has autism. I have taught myself alot (mainly through your website), but this virtual teaching is very difficult for me, especially with these 2 boys. The boy with CVI is nonverbal and around the cognitive age of a one year old, and the boy who is blind and autistic is verbal but I cannot get him to want to learn braille and we are working on tactile symbols and just starting working with core vocabulary this year.
