Counselors-in-Training with Visual Impairments: Special Needs and Pedagogical Considerations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The practices of counseling and counselor education typically involve a number of visual elements (e.g., reading nonverbal cues; PowerPoint presentations; fishbowl exercises). Although these common practices enrich counseling and teaching, they can provide challenges for counselors-in-training with visual impairments (VIs). The purpose of this interactive session is to examine ways counselor educators can adapt elements of their teaching to better meet the unique needs of students with VIs.
