This is the first of a 3-part series presented by Patty Obrzut and Jessica McCavit, who are both Occupational Therapists at the Penrickton Center for Blind Children. The first session will focus on hand development (fine motor skills) and matching materials to the child's developmental level using an Active Learning approach, developed by Dr. Lilli Nielsen for learners with significant multiple disabilities.
Beginning in September, the series will run through the 2018-19 school year and participants are encouraged to join in each of the sessions, in order to ensure continuity. All of the webinars will be recorded and archived, so that they can be viewed at a later date. YOU MUST REGISTER SEPARATELY FOR EACH SESSION.
All sessions will be held at the following times:
- 4:00-5:00 -- Eastern
- 3:00-4:00 -- Central
- 2:00-3:00 -- Mountain
- 1:00-2:00 -- Pacific
This training event has been approved by the Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals (ACVREP) and the State Board for Educator Certification based on the actual hours of the presentation not including breaks.
Handouts, as well as a link to the webinar, will be sent out to all registered participants via email in advance. If you have any questions regarding this webinar, please contact Charlotte Cushman at firstname.lastname@example.org .
