Classroom Visits:

Invite someone in the community with a visual disability to visit the classroom and talk to students face to face. Students should come prepared with questions to ask, as well as some background knowledge in advance of the visit about what that person’s visual disability involves. Be prepared to facilitate the conversation, as well as recap the discussion afterwards with students.
