Mainstream VI support and a Typical New England town

Visit to a main stream school today to meet an itinerant teacher of visually impaired who supports a blind student. On the way there we filled up with gas and the last thing I expected to see was a TV screen on the top of the pump! Seriously?!

The school was near Worcester Massachusetts! A very familiar name!

Barbara, the itinerant teacher and her colleague Shavaun do an excellent job of modifying materials and teaching the skills required by their students with a visual impairment. It struck me that we are all doing the same job, sometimes in the same way, but often differently and I really appreciate the fact that I have had the opportunity to share ideas and learn from others.

 
 
 
 
 
This pen was very similar to the Pen Friend from RNIB. When you placed the tip on an item it spoke the recorded information for that square to you.
 
 
I was fascinated by the school buses. There must have been at least 20 around the car park at the end of the day. Obviously I could only get a few in my shot, but there were loads more.

After visiting the school we visited Grafton, a very typical New England town. I loved the buildings.

 

Halloween over, now time for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
