Supporting Learners Series: The Whole Child: Being Safe
Taking a whole child approach helps us focus beyond solely academics to include thinking about a student’s social-emotional, physical and safety needs. Designed with the whole child in mind, this module will focus on the tenant of being safe and what that could mean for students with visual impairment.
- Recognize why students need to be provided with safe environments in order to achieve academically and increased student well-being.
- Describe how safety drills and activities need to be adapted to meet the needs for students with visual impairments.
- Identify ways to make the school environment physically and emotionally safe for students with visual impairments.
