Description of College Bound: Practical Steps for Students Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired

Transitioning to college and work is often a challenge for students who are blind or visually impaired. Success in college requires more than just academic knowledge. Too often students arrive on campus lacking the basic skills they need to be successful. This 2 part webinar, College Bound: Practical Steps for Students Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired, provides teachers and service providers suggestions for preparing their students for the transition to college and work.


It is presented by AFB staff members Neva Fairchild, National Independent Living & Employment Specialist, who is blind and has served as a vocational counselor for college students, and Ike Presley, National Project Manager, who has low vision and is a former teacher of the visually impaired.

They discuss the following topics:



    Part 1:
  • Organizational skills

  • Time management skills

  • Social skills

  • Independent living skills

  • Orientation & Mobility skills

  • Self-advocacy skills

  • Access technology skills

    Part 2:
  • Study skills
