Product Description

Designed for educators and families, this kit contains a curriculum that engages visually impaired students with their sighted age-mates in activities that promote social competence and awareness of the ways in which visually impaired students learn social skills. Each lesson takes 30-45 minutes to complete and contains a clearly stated objective, skills addressed, an introduction, a list of materials needed, and a step-by-step explanation of the activities. An icon at the top of each page identifies whether a lesson is about social skills, ability awareness, or a combination of the two.

This product contains small parts and is not intended for children ages 5 and under without adult supervision.
