This is a free online course offered by Hadley School for the Blind that describes how parents and professionals working with a child who is visually impaired or has additional disabilities can maximize the child's independence at home, school, work, and in the community. It covers the core areas of education, early intervention and elementary education, as well as preteen, adolescent, and adulthood programs, services, and activities. Familiarity with this information can help a person prepare a child for a successful transition to adult services once traditional schooling ends.
