Optic Nerve Hypoplasia (ONH) can be a complex visual impairment as it can affect many facets of an individual’s daily life and growth. Students with ONH may face challenges in the sensory, language, social skills, and vision domains. There are a variety of strategies however that may be implemented to help them be active learners and participants throughout their day in the home and/or classroom. The presenters in this presentation will share multiple strategies that educators and caregivers can incorporate to fulfill what the student with ONH needs in order to be able to learn. The goal of incorporating ONH strategies shared in this workshop is to empower students with ONH of all ages and abilities to be as independent and an active learner as much as possible.
