Online Learning Opportunities from Schools for the Blind and Related Organizations

Online learning opportunities for students who are blind or visually impaired

During this time of virtual instruction, many schools for the blind are compiling available resources and making them available online for their students and staff.  While there is a great deal of overlap among these lists, each one has some resources that are worth noting.  In general, the lists we have linked to below include activity ideas for families to do with their children at home, ideas for virtual lessons for TVIs and COMS to do from a distance, and training opportunities for adults who are interested.  We have selected original material, when possible, as there is quite a bit of duplication among lists.  Our emphasis is on direct instructional support for students, families, and teachers.

Please let us know if there are other pages that should be included here.
