In this podcast, Health Education for Children with Disabilities, Charlotte Cushman talks with Helen Osborne about:

  • Understanding the learning challenges of students who are blind, deaf-blind, or have other physical and cognitive disabilities.
  • Using tactile objects, picture books, technology, clear explanations, and other strategies to teach about health.
  • Working as a team with the student, family members, teachers, and interpreters.

A transcript of the podcast is included, as is a list of resources for health literacy for students who are blind or visually impaired, including those who have multiple disabilities or deafblindness.
