Alert message

TSBVI is developing a library of fact sheets for administrators, parents and others.

We need your help!

Successful factsheets are a blend of information and “next steps” that speaks to the needs and interests of the audience. Factsheets can be an important part of any educational or advocacy endeavor.

We want to make sure we understand the needs of the readers and that our message is clear. Our goal is to develop the best possible fact sheet.

The final factsheets will be available on the TSBVI website for all to use. We hope that others will both use and expand on the options, especially in the development of parent version of various factsheets.

There are multiple drafts of each individual fachsheet. We want to know if we are moving in the right direction and which, if any, we should publish. It is possible that we could make them all available, but only if they are considered unique, effective and relevant.

PLEASE take just a moment to evaluate any of our fact sheets. It won’t take long as each is a single page. We value your feedback as we move to the next step: finalizing layout and graphics. Once the content is finalized the factsheets will go to a graphic designer and will be professionally published.

Introduction

Our first set of fact sheets address the topics listed below. The intended audience is listed in parenthesis. We have multiple options for each fact sheet.
  • Something Different Every Day: A recruiting factsheet (potential VI professionals)
  • Change and Teach: A recruiting factsheet (potential VI professionals
  • Grow Your Own VI Teacher: A recruiting factsheet (administrators)
  • Benefits of Hiring a Braillist (administrators)
  • Distinguishing Between VI Teachers and O&M specialists (administrators and general educators)
  • Benefits of an Appropriate Caseload size (administrators)
  • Deafblind Interveners (administrators, with a nod to parents)

There are 2-3 drafts of each factsheet. You can evaluate just one, or all of a set. Each one is only a single page, so it shouldn’t take long. The evaluation survey is provided.
