This workshop is for families and professionals who work with students who are blind or have visual impairments with additional impairments, including cognitive delays. The presenter is Diane Wormsley; her work with this population in the US, Australia, and Papua New Guinea led Dr. Wormsley to develop the I-M-Able approach to the teaching of Braille literacy. Learn how to create these materials & take home the book with lessons you created in class.
