September marks the arrival of autumn—brilliant swaying leaves, invigorating crisp air, warm drinks soothing our chilled hands, and chunky cable-knit sweaters adorning us all. (That is, unless you live in Florida! Shout out to that great state I once called home.)
Regardless, I think I speak for all when I say this change of season and accompanying weather is welcome.
I’m reminded of our ever-changing field of blindness and visual impairments. As time progresses, our students/consumers become more diverse, as does the world into which they’re integrating.
So, how do we become more knowledgeable on the unique needs of our recent clients (think: the rapidly growing population of individuals with brain-based visual impairments)? How do we keep up with today’s research-based best practices? How do we stay on top of ever-evolving technology?
Three words: AFB eLearning Center.
We offer a wide variety of courses and webinars to help you stay current in best practices and earn continuing education credits. Topics include:
- Employment of Older Persons with Visual Impairments
- Assessment, Intervention, and Literacy for Individuals with Cortical Visual Impairment
- An Overview of Unified English Braille (UEB)
- Creating Tactile Overlays for the iPad and Tablet Devices
- And many more!
It is a privilege to provide these resources for you, as you provide the education individuals with visual impairments use to lead rich lives at home and in the workplace.
