Dr. Kay Alicyn Ferrell to Answer Questions on FamilyConnect's "Ask the Expert" Blog
FamilyConnect and AFB Press are excited to announce a special opportunity for families to interact directly with one of the foremost experts on blindness and visual impairment in early childhood, Dr. Kay Alicyn Ferrell. Dr. Ferrell will personally respond to questions posted on the FamilyConnect "Ask the Expert" blog, July 18-29 at www.familyconnect.org.
This one-of-a-kind opportunity gives families the chance to have their questions and concerns addressed by a top expert, in a forum that will share helpful answers with FamilyConnect members, other families, and professionals.
Dr. Ferrell is Professor at the School of Special Education and Director of the National Center on Severe and Sensory Disabilities, College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, at the University of Northern Colorado, Greely. She was the principal investigator of the groundbreaking Project Prism, the first study of child development in 50 years to focus on children with visual impairments and the ways in which their development is similar to or different from that of typically sighted children.
In addition, Dr. Ferrell will also be answering questions about her newest book, Reach Out and Teach: Helping Your Young Child Who is Visually Impaired Learn and Grow. This invaluable resource for both parents of children with visual and multiple impairments and the professionals who work with them, provides information and strategies about promoting child development from birth to school age.
Reach Out and Teach is currently available from the AFB Press bookstore at www.afb.org/store. Parents who wish to read the book prior to participating in the "Ask the Expert" event July 18-29 can purchase it at a special 10% discount by using the coupon code FC2011.
