Hello Friends & Colleagues!

The American Foundation for the Blind's CareerConnect® program through the generous support of AT&T is pleased to present two new, free-of-charge online seminars that provide a great opportunity to receive continuing education units that are approved by ACVREP and CRCC.

Session 1: What's Next. Postsecondary Training Preparation for Students with Visual Impairments 
Release Date: June 15, 2010
Length: 90-minutes
Dr. Karen E. Wolffe, Career Counseling & Consultation, will discuss the available resources and critical skills that young adults with visual impairments need to acquire before graduation from high school to be successful in postsecondary training programs. A panel of young adults (and service providers) will join her for a discussion of self advocacy techniques. 

Session 2: Technology and Visual Impairment in Higher Education
Release Date: June 16, 2010
Length: 90-minutes
Ike Presley, Project Manager, Professional Development, will discuss current trends in technology and implications for both high school and postsecondary training. Tips for the transition into postsecondary education will highlight technological solutions for everything from lectures to labs. Current students will join Ike to share their personal experiences and advice.

You may watch one or both webcasts and complete a short evaluation required for continuing education credit. Everything can be accessed through your work or home computers. The two 90-minute sessions will be available through AFB CareerConnect®. 

The sessions will be available in video or as audio-only, which will be beneficial for people with slower Internet connections. Special bonus: register today for the opportunity to win an AFB Press book!
