Re:Motivation for a visually impaired child



I have three blind students, all of approximately equal intelligence, two are highly motivated academically, one not at all. Family seems to play a big part, but we can't change that piece. What would a blind student suggest that a teacher may do to change motivation in a blind student?

Re:Motivation for a visually impaired child



hi there

it would help to know a little more about the child, eg the age of the child, does the child have any useful vision at all, etc.
