AFB Town Halls – Engage in Dialogue Sparked by the Flatten Inaccessibility and Access Engagement Reports
Town Hall #2: October 29 from 2-3 PM Eastern
Topics: Employment and Technology Presenters: Dr. L. Penny Rosenblum, AFB, Director of Research
Sarah Malaier, Public Policy & Research Advisor
The Flatten Inaccessibility report examined the impact of COVID-19 on 1,921 adults with visual impairments and the Access and Engagement survey examined the impact of COVID-19 on the education of 455 children and 1,028 teachers of students with visual impairments and orientation and mobility specialists.
These reports contain a wealth of information on timely topics important to those with visual impairments, family members, educators, employers, policymakers, and anyone else who is invested in accessibility and inclusivity for those with vision loss. During the October 29 AFB Town Hall, we'll be digging into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on employment and technology access for adults who are blind or have low vision.
