Summer Institute 2023
July 31 – August 1 DMACC, Ankeny Campus
At Iowa Educational Services for the Blind & Visually Impaired, we understand teachers, paras and others have likely not worked with a child who is blind before, and may have a lot of questions about this new unknown. That’s why every summer, we offer a free two-day institute to familiarize you with resources, techniques and strategies to build your confidence and knowledge of educationally-related topics important for the academic success of your student who is blind or visually impaired.
More than 30 classes are offered; most taught by vision education professionals from IESBVI. Attendees gain hands-on knowledge such as making materials accessible, how to adapt physical education classes, how to make assessment accommodations and more.
