Adaptation of What’s for Lunch?

Adapting books for students who are deafblind or blind or visually impaired with additional disabilities

Teacher Megan Connaughton from the Deafblind Program at Perkins School for the Blind presents a 5-minute video showing how she adapted Eric Carle’s book What’s For Lunch? for students with visual impairments and additional disabilities.  The book features a monkey making choices about which type of fruit he would like to eat.  Megan discusses the adaptations she made for students with CVI (Cortical Visual Impairment) and the use of a pre-recorded switch for students who are non-verbal to participate in the activity.  She demonstrates examples of tactile symbols and modifications to make the book accessible to all students.
