and jobs easier. Presentations are 60-90 minutes in length. Participants

At the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa 
Literacy is liberating. It opens doors, enlarges the world and makes
life richer and more meaningful. Reading impacts us in a way that no
other art form - or life skill - can duplicate. It touches all areas of
our lives.

The Getting In Touch With Literacy Conference is an international event
focusing on literacy for individuals with visual impairments of all ages
and developmental levels. All forms of literacy including print,
braille, auditory, tactile graphics comprehension and the use of
assistive technology as well as research and practice will be explored.
This is an opportunity for you to share your research and innovations
and to learn practical solutions to better serve individuals who are
blind, visually impaired or deaf-blind.  Presentations will address the
needs of a range of ages and all levels of ability, including
conventional and functional literacy. Keynote speakers will address
broad literacy issues and workshops will focus on specific areas such as
*	Assessment, instruction and support
*	Assistive technology and tactile graphics
*	Braille Instruction and Tactile Literacy
*	Early Childhood Literacy
*	Cultural Linguistic Diversity and English Language Learners
*	Legislation and Policy Affecting Literacy
*	Literacy and Additional Learning Needs
*	Low Vision
*	Transitional and Vocational Literacy
	Mark your calendars now and plan to join us for this worldwide
event! Workshop proposals are being accepted until April 15, 2009.
	Conference Co-Chairs: Cheryl Kamei-Hannan  &  Nancy Niebrugge
