I Know Better!

Today I was communicating with the staff in PSVI office in my co-operating school. The PVSI is a “Program for Students with Visual Impairments”. When I was emailing them I said “please let me know if you think my activity is ok for the visually impaired”.

They replied and ever-so-kindly reminded me that we always refer to our students with students first language, such as “our students with VI (visual impairments)”.

I know better. We learned this last year! But now that I have learned it again in a real-time experience, I think I will actually remember and apply what I have learned.

Oops!
