In honor of #CTEBVI20, workshop presenters Dr. Ting Siu (San Francisco State University), Vanessa Herndon (California School for the Blind), and Adrian Amandi (CSB) created a webinar version of their presentation "FVLM(t)A [ECC]: Comprehensive Evaluation & Reports for Blind and Low Vision Students". This webinar reviews the components of a comprehensive evaluation as required for determining educational vision services for students who are blind or who have low vision: The FVA (Functional Vision Assessment), LMA (Learning Media Assessment), AT (Access/Assistive Technology), and the ECC (Expanded Core Curriculum). The TPACK Framework is presented as a strategy for integrating a student's technology needs with unified information from each evaluation component. Finally, a draft template for writing a comprehensive evaluation report is presented for practice and ongoing discussion.
