2018 Summit on Sensory Disabilities

A Roadmap for Navigating Systems for Successful Life Transitions

8:00 am – 9:15 am | Wednesday, November 14

Presented and hosted by The Outreach Center for Deafness and Blindness (Outreach Center) and the Assistive Technology and Accessible Educational Materials (AT&AEM) Center, the Summit is designed for education professionals and parents who work with or support individuals who are deaf/hard of hearing or blind/visually impaired.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from and engage with experts in the field about systems and supports for navigating the many transitions that occur across the lifespan – from early identification to the schooling years to the transition into adulthood and employment. The summit format will feature a combination of short presentations and facilitated round table discussions.

Summit participants will:

  • Explore systems, supports, and resources with a specific focus on transition
  • Learn steps involved in transitioning from birth to early intervention, early intervention to school, and school to career
  • Participate in roundtable discussions facilitated by experts in the field
  • Network with state and regional partners
  • Receive updates on Outreach Center and AT & AEM Center activities and newly developed resources

Join us for an informative and highly interactive event first thing Wednesday morning – then continue your day by participating in the Braille AT Forum or OCALICON breakout sessions. The breakout session schedule will be released in June 2018.

Access to the Summit on Sensory Disabilities is included in OCALICON  2018 registration. You must be a registered OCALICON participant to attend.

The Summit on Sensory Disabilities is presented by The Outreach Center for Deafness and Blindness and the AT & AEM Center at OCALI.
