AFB Town Hall #3: Impact of COVID-19 on Education Across the Lifespan

Engage in Dialogue Sparked by the Flatten Inaccessibility and Access Engagement Reports.

The Flatten Inaccessibility report examined the impact of COVID-19 on 1,921 adults with visual impairments and the Access and Engagement survey examined the impact of COVID-19 on the education of 455 children and 1,028 teachers of students with visual impairments and orientation and mobility specialists.

These reports contain a wealth of information on timely topics important to those with visual impairments, family members, educators, employers, policymakers, and anyone else who is invested in accessibility and inclusivity for those with vision loss.

When you register for any of the AFB Town Halls you’ll be given an opportunity to submit questions or comments in advance. During the live sessions, the panelists will field questions and comments submitted in advance, along with questions entered into the Q&A feature of Zoom. Live captions will be provided for each town hall, and ASL is available on request.

Time:  November 10, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern
