Welcome to My Survey

Thank you for participating in our survey. Your feedback is important. This survey is anonymous - we will not be able to identify individual respondents to the survey.
Note: if you are a professional answering the questions based on the experiences of more than one student, please indicate that in your answers.

To meet the educational needs of students who are blind or visually impaired, a number of supports are required:
* Assistive technology such as screen magnifiers, talking word processors, text readers, CCTV's, screen readers, Braille translation software, notetakers, Braille embossers, etc.
* Access to materials (Braille, large print, electronic text)
* Focus on an expanded core curriculum that addresses the unique needs of each blind and visually impaired student (for more information on this, go to Alberta Education - Expanded Core Curriculum
* Ongoing support of a skilled education team that includes classroom teachers, qualified teachers of the blind and visually impaired (vision consultants), educational assistants and parents.

As a group, ASVI can play a role in advocating for the above supports required to ensure students who are blind and visually impaired receive the best educational experiences possible.
