How We All Learn: A Practical Approach to Low Incidence High Needs, Including Deaf-BlindnessPresentation Slides
Mark Campano, M. Ed.
This session will examine the typical aspects of learning -how we all learn- including how sensory systems
impact learning, and the effects of those systems and experiences on learning for individuals with
moderate/significant cognitive impairments and dual sensory impairments (deaf-blindness). This
understanding of how the student learns will allow educators to utilize a variety of best practices and
communication techniques in a way that’s meaningful and functional to the student. Participants will interact
through use of simulations, video examples, and practice.
