Families, educators, and other school personnel are invited to attend MDE-LIO’s LIVE With LIO webinars, which are held every other Tuesday at noon during the school year.

Each LIVE With LIO webinar covers topics that are specific to supporting students who are Blind/Visually Impaired (BVI) or who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing (DHH). No registration is required for these webinars. The second Tuesday of each month focuses on BVI topics, and the fourth Tuesday of each month focuses on DHH topics.
