DC/MD Call for Papers

Basic Information


St. Michael's, Maryland

More Details


We want you. We want you to share your knowledge, enthusiasm, and creativity. The Organizers of the DC/MD Chapter Annual Conference is sponsoring a Call for Papers relating to low vision and blindness. We hope to offer sessions that are interactive. Consider having the attendees test a device/app/skill you are demonstrating. Perhaps leading a role play would allow the attendees to experience simulated low or no vision. Show us some great new methods you have started using in your teaching, or explain a new confusing law to us that relates to our careers.

Bonus points if you can explain the law using puppets or maybe you work with someone outside our field: a physical therapist, special ed teacher, politician, or job provider. Maybe the two of you have crafted a brilliant new way to benefit your visually impaired student or client. We want to hear from you too. We all want to learn; and you are just the person to teach us.

The 2018 DC/MD AER Conference will be held on March 15-16, 2018 in beautiful St. Michael’s, Maryland. We hope to see you there. If you or someone you know would like to creatively and enthusiastically present on something, please click here to fill out the attached form by October 6, 2017.
