MADB/DB Central Family Retreat 2012
Hosted by DB Central working in collaboration with the National Consortium on DeafBlindness
Presenter: Barbara Purvis
Are you looking for literacy strategies for children with sensory losses? Children who do not use a formal language system? Children who have multiple disabilities and complex learning challenges? If the answer is YES then you are encouraged to watch this recorded presentation on a new literacy website developed by the National Consortium on Deaf-Blindness ( NCDB 2.0 ). The Literacy website, launched in January 2012, is designed to be user-friendly and provides strategies, examples and resources for increasing literacy learning opportunities for children at a variety of skill levels. The presenter, Barbara Purvis, provides a tour of the site and shares examples of how it can be utilized by professionals and families.
The bi-annual Advisory Board Committee Meeting will be held Friday, March 22, 2013.
