Join the Michigan Department of Education – Low Incidence Outreach (MDE-LIO) to discuss tips and tricks for teaching independent living skills (ILS). This free one-hour session is for professionals who serve students who are Blind/Visually Impaired (BVI) and parents to learn a variety of methods for teaching ILS. Learn tricks for basic cooking, cleaning, laundry, dressing, organizational, and home maintenance. There is no one right way to teach ILS, so bring your ideas to share with the group!

Participants will:

  • gain skills for teaching students basic cooking, cleaning, laundry, dressing, organizational, and home maintenance
  • demonstrate their ideas for teaching ILS
  • gather resources for teaching ILS


This webinar is for school personnel and parents/guardians supporting students who are BVI.
