VIDBE-Q Volume 65 Issue 3 challenges I have seen amazing collaboration to serve the visual impairment field. Various professionals, universities, and organizations have come together to ensure students with visual impairments have equal access to education as their peers and to provide resources to teachers, families, and administrators during this time. On June 10th DVIDB paired with the Association for Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired (AER) to provide a free webinar entitled "Home is a Powerful Place for Learning: Creating Empowering Environments for Kids with Visual Impairments and Deafblindness". This webinar gave families and teachers wonderful strategies to meaningfully engage children with visual impairments and deafblindness within their home. The webinar is available to view at: https://community.cec.sped.org/dvi/home Continue to watch for upcoming captioned webinars from DVIDB throughout the fall to support students, families, and educators. Our webinars are always free to members and ACVREP professional development hours are offered. The international CEC convention is planned for March 3rd-6th 2021 in Baltimore, MD and DVIDB is excited to have many strong presenters over the three days. Additionally, we are working on a pre-convention workshop on March 3rd to be hosted at the Maryland School for the Blind. Currently, the convention is planning to be face to face so hopefully I will see many of you! Should this change we will share if and how the convention will be held virtually.
