Program description: A student who is d eaf b lind and may also have other complicating conditions needs ACCESS to what and who is in this world! Providing opportunities to move and learn is important for concept, communication and language development. Lilli Nielsen was a person who understood thi s and provided wonderful ways for the student to experience and gain knowledge. This presentation will present some of those ways along with many other ways for the student to be in action and learn, even those with some physical limitations. Videos will b e used during the presentation to clarify specific points.
