Abstract
Intended for use by O&M professionals, this book summarizes promising pedagogical methods for teaching street crossings to persons who are blind and visually impaired. Teaching Street Crossing to Students With Visual Impairments: How to Teach, Not What to Teach provides information about teaching various components of street-crossing skills at appropriate ages/developmental levels; sequencing skills and environments; and using appropriate pedagogical strategies to enhance effectiveness of street-crossing instruction. The goal of this manual is to provide information about different strategies—skills-based, behavioral, and Piagetian—that are derived from different theories of learning. Practical case examples and vignettes throughout the manual apply concepts to real-world scenarios for the reader.
