YouTube Learning Videos for Students with Visual Impairments

YouTube videos can be a valuable resource when looking for learning content for our students with visual impairments.

As a TVI (Teacher of the Visually Impaired) I have been using YouTube for a few years now as a valuable resource when looking for learning content for myself as an educator or as a tool to use with my students.

Not All Videos Are Created Equal

It is important to note that anyone can post a video on YouTube. As the educator, carefully review the videos before presenting them. If you can’t find one that is a great fit, create it and share with others!

Video Links

Below are some learning videos that were created and may be appropriate for students with a visual impairment. As with all content and materials, evaluate individual needs to determine if it is right for that student.
