Part of the mission of Blind Motherhood is to dedicate a portion of the website’s content space towards resources that can positively impact members of the blind and visually impaired community. As a social worker myself, I’ll admit I have pretty high standards, before recommending any “online guides” marketed towards people with vision loss. The content must be clear, relevant and comprehensive. That’s why when I was emailed a copy of the Helping Students with Visual Impairments: Resources, Tools & Technology to Foster School Success, I knew it would be helpful to many of my readers, both as visually impaired parents who may be considering furthering their own education and for sighted parents of blind children.
Helping Students with Visual Impairments:
Written by three educational experts, with a myriad of experience in both the field of disabilities and with the blind, Helping Students with Visual Impairments, seeks to address the specific needs of blind/vi students by improving accessibility measures that will directly impact student’s success. The guide explains how colleges are working towards creating more inclusive, thereby empowering, learning environments; relying heavily on assistive technology to help the visually impaired succeed. In addition, the guide has information relating to available scholarships for students with visual impairments and online resources they can access independently.
