Sunday February 28, 2021 - 12:01 AM - Online
Due to significant lack of access to environmental information, students with deafblindness are at risk for not learning critical time concepts needed to have a fundamental understanding of the events around them. This session will focus on the anticipation, daily and weekly time frame and the associated time concepts that should be taught.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify student characteristics for readiness for anticipation, daily and weekly calendars.
- Describe 3 time concepts/skills students with deafblindness may have difficulty learning incidentally.
- Identify list time vocabulary words that are used to depict future and past.
