Teach CS to Blind and Visually Impaired Students 


There are between 8 and 9 million students with disabilities in K-12 education in the United States who are served under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.  The majority of these students are in mainstream classrooms including computer science classes such as AP Computer Science Principles (CSP) and AP Computer Science A (CSA).

Through a 4-part webinar series Accessible Computer Science: Teacher to Teacher, CS teachers who specialize in teaching blind and visually impaired students, deaf and hard of hearing students, and learning disabled and neurodiverse students will share strategies that other K-12 educators can use to include students with disabilities in their classroom.
