We offer a variety of training options for professionals in the fields of blindness and education, parents, and families including distance learning, exhibits and presentations at conferences, and expanded core curriculum academies/professional learning communities.
Outreach Services offers many opportunities for students to learn on their own or with their classmates. Through the APH Virtual ExCEL Academy and Virtual ExCEL Camp, your students can choose from a wide range of classes and activities.
APH continues to expand its reach through our strategically placed Regional Specialists. Regional Specialists meet the unique needs of EOTs, professionals, families, and other service providers working with students who are blind or low vision by providing tailored support to communities.
The Federal Act to Promote the Education of the Blind was enacted by Congress in 1879. It provides adapted educational materials to eligible students who meet the definition of blindness.
The APH Abacus Bee is a fun and engaging competition designed to ignite a passion for mathematics in students who are blind or have low vision.
Each year APH hosts Annual Meeting, gathering Ex Officio Trustees (EOTs), Teachers of the Visually Impaired (TVIs), other professionals, and special guests to learn about different products and services that APH offers, discuss important issues in the field, give feedback, and network.
