Students with Visual Impairments Using Technology
You would probably agree that teenagers are usually the most plugged-in people you know. They are always on their computers, sending instant messages, watching videos, and playing games. If they are not on their computers, they are talking on their cell phones or sending text messages to friends. You are probably wondering how your visually impaired child can keep up. Will he be able to do his school work? Will he be able to keep in touch with friends and use the same technology that they use?
We interviewed some students to find out what they are using and how they are doing. Their answers will reassure you. Learn how they are using technology to
- connect with friends,
