Listen as Anne Corn discusses the importance of collaboration between the general education teacher and the TVI (time: 0:50).
What’s most important is plan ahead and work with the teacher of students with visual impairments to be sure that the child is ready to access the lessons that you’re going to be able to provide for all the children in your classroom. So, for example, if you’re going to be teaching children how to tell time, be sure that the child has an embossed wristwatch or a clock that they can use. If you’re going to be talking about eclipse of the sun, be sure that the child has the prerequisite skills, such as understanding concepts of light and shadow. Prepare ahead of time so that the materials that you need are made available in braille or recorded form or whatever is going to help you teach that child because this child is a child in your classroom, along with all the other children.
