Evaluating Students with Visual Impairments
Making Evaluatons Meaningful with Marnee Loftin

This training is designed to increase depth of knowledge and confidence of the members of the multidisciplinary evaluation team responsible for assessing students with visual impairments for VI and other conditions. 

Important Session Information:

This interactive session with author, Marnee Loftin, who recently revised, Making Evaluations Meaningful for Students with Visual Impairments, is one your evaluation team won't want to miss. Meaningful evaluation of students with visual impairments is an especially complicated task. The population of students with a visual impairment is diverse and no two students are alike. Often these students have additional co-existing impairments that impact their growth and progress. The combined effects must be closely examined to determine effective instructional strategies.


Marnee served as the school psychologist at the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Austin for many years and now consults on cases and presents trainings internationally. Her book, Making Evaluations Meaningful, is intended to provide guidance to evaluation personnel, teachers of students visually with visual impairments (TSVIs), certified orientation and mobility specialists (COMS) and families in the data collection process, so the best possible decisions for instructional programming are made. Diagnosticians, school psychologists, speech and language pathologists, TSVIs, and COMS are strongly encouraged to attend this session as a team. Each district and charter represented will receive a copy of Marnee's recently revised book.
