The child with a visual impairment uses residual vision, hearing, touch, smell and taste to learn about the world. These senses are the access points for learning. This webinar discusses how these senses develop and how they can be optimally used for learning. We will discuss assessment of the sensory channels for understanding the child’s access strengths and areas of access need. Strategies for including compensatory skills in programming will be highlighted.
