August 9, 2022 - December 6, 2022 | Hybrid VIISA Training Course

The VIISA (Vision Impaired Inservice in America) Project in collaboration with the Indiana Deaf-Blind Services Project, Visually Impaired Preschool Services and Family Connect at APH will provide inservice training for early intervention and early childhood personnel serving young children, ages birth to five, with blindness and visual impairments. Participants will become familiar with intervention strategies and materials appropriate for use with this population of children in all areas of development and programming. They also learn about the other agencies and service providers in their state that can be of help to them. This course will combine virtual sessions and face-to-face trainings with home-study assignments where participants apply what they learn with actual children on their current caseloads with vision loss. Participants are provided with written feedback.
