Learning Media Assessment for Students with Visual Impairments and Complex Instructional Needs

Uploaded: August 4, 2014 |  0 Comments  | 

Teachers of students with visual impairments assess the learning media needs of their students by determining which sensory systems provide the most efficient access to the materials used in their instruction. When students are at the sensorimotor stage of cognitive development, regardless of their chronological ages, efficient use of sensory systems for the exploration and use of learning media is the most essential element of learning. For these students, TVIs must conduct assessments that inform them about strategies and accommodations that maximize sensory efficiency so that they can provide team members with the support they need to overcome sensory barriers to learning during daily instruction.
