Quote from Animaniacs
How should I go about teaching a group of people who are visually impaired or completely blind? This teaching is basically to reenforce the importance of management, nutrition, and exercise to this population who have diabetes. Some of this people became visually impaired as a result of not properly managing their diabetes.
I'm not going to touch on the whole detail of what is diabetes, symptoms, complications. They probably know that already, because remember, it is likely they became visually impaired as a result of unmanaged diabetes. But I will quickly and briefly talk about what is diabetes, symptoms, complications. But I want to focus on management, nutrition, and exercise, that's my main goal.
I'm thinking of just talking during my teaching, but supportive materials for my teaching will be awesome, and I'd rather have that, but I dont know what I should use.
Any advice would be good on how should I teach, what kind of materials I will use for the blind/visually impaired group?
I think I can help here I and visually impaired and have diabetes . I also have taken diabetes class . First bring things people and fill like if you are talking about nutrition bring some of those fake plastic toy foods to show sizes . in turms of testing blood sugers call the makers of the talking meters and bring some to show people . the best lancet device for the blind is the accucheck miltciclix becouse it has drums and you do not have to touch a needle just pop it in a go .
look at www.ILA.com
they have spechel items for the blind to use . also any info you bring try to have it put into large print and braille . Call your states libary for the blind for info on this . you can bring a few reg. print for those that have cctvs.
