Health Education for Students With Visual Impairments: A Guidebook for Teachers
Every student should have access to a quality and comprehensive health education. APH developed this guidebook specifically for teachers who provide instruction to students with visual impairments, ages 5 through 21.
This Guidebook does not provide a comprehensive curriculum that covers all areas of health education; rather, it provides ways to make specific aspects of health education accessible to students with visual impairments.
