The Professional Development and Research Institute at Louisiana Tech University has started a blog that they hope will be a useful resource for anyone who works with blind children and adults. These are some of the topics that the blog will cover.
The latest research on blindness to help you to better answer questions
from educators and the general public, which will improve the opportunities
available for blind students and professionals;
Methods for teaching braille and cane travel that will increase the
effectiveness of instruction, allowing blind people to lead active, truly
Philosophy-rich speeches and articles leading the public to see blind
people as equal participants in their training, education and employment;
Perspectives from current students and alumni about why they find it
rewarding to teach blind students and adults, encouraging others to join the
growing profession; and
Interviews with experienced professionals, which will create nationwide
networking opportunities for teachers of the blind that will foster
collaboration on the latest, research-based instructional methods.
