Sensory Learning Kit Workshop 

Come join us for this two-day workshop on the Sensory Learning Kit presented by Mildred (Millie) Smith.  The Sensory Learning Kit is specifically designed for students with visual impairments functioning under the cognitive age of two with limited or no formal communication skills. This kit provides you with an assessment and resulting learning strategies that can be implemented at school and in the home.   

Millie Smith, the author and developer of the Sensory Learning Kit, will guide us through the background information as to how these students learn, how to assess them to determine sensory preferences, and finally how to establish foundational learning routines.

This training is free and upon completion each district or agency will receive a Sensory Learning Kit from American Printing House for the Blind valued at $500.00.  Participants are responsible for their own travel, lodging, and food expenses either personally or through their district / agency.  

View the draft agenda here.  Registration for this event will close on November 16, 2018.
