Lavelle Fund Study – Invitation to Participate

Through a generous grant from the Lavelle Fund for the Blind, Inc., the Institute on Movement Studies for Individuals with Visual Impairment or Deafblindness (IMSVI—through SUNY Brockport) in conjunction with the American Printing House for the Blind are conducting a study to determine two questions:

  1. What professional and parents would like in a training on improving physical activity for children who have visual impairments with additional disabilities, including severe disabilities or deafblindness and
  2. What is the best way to access this information?

If you serve children who have visual impairments with additional disabilities, including a severe disability or deafblindness, or if you are a parent of a child who fits this description, please consider completing the following questionnaire(s) by clicking on the corresponding link below.

In addition, we will host focus group sessions via Zoom. Please, consider joining us for one of them and participating in the conversation. To register for a focus group, please, e-mail Peter Rifenburg with your first and second choice of date and time. Each session is limited to 20 participants.

IMSVI’s hope is to apply for another grant in 2021 to develop trainings for teachers, paraeducators, and parents to help them improve physical activity and physical education for children who have visual impairments with additional disabilities, including children with severe disabilities or deafblindness.

If you have any questions or ideas, please contact Lauren Lieberman Ph.D.
