American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) will host the third of three calls for parents and educators of children who are blind or visually impaired. This final call is geared towards parents and educators of Pre-Kindergarten-aged children.
The goal of this inclusive field-wide series of discussions with parents and educators is to document the most pressing concerns, the most common problems, and the most fertile ground for meaningful systems change in the special education arena for students who are blind or visually impaired.
Your candid input will help to develop comprehensive but concise policy guidance resources to help you and parents like you, along with teachers of students with visual impairments and other critical members of the educational team. Those resources will include:
A full and accurate understanding of your child's rights
The proper role of educators
The responsibilities of schools and other public agencies
Legal, academic, and other reliable sources of authority
Best practices to ensure the most appropriate education for your child
