VIDBE-Q Volume 66 Issue 4 Christopher Tabb, Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, tabbc@tsbvi.edu As a Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist at the Texas School or the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI) who is involved with family engagement, I have noticed some common themes among the questions parents and families have about how best to help their children with visual impairments and deafblindness. The common denominator I find at the root of all the questions is a desire of parents and families to help their child become as independent as possible. This article will highlight some ways that you, as a parent, can facilitate your child's development of skills for life. There are sections for young people at various levels of functional ability (feel free to jump to the sections that best align with the present needs of your child). This article is not intended as a complete set of answers, only a launching pad for more learning, engagement, and interaction with your child as they grow, learn, and develop. Hopefully you will seek out other resources in your communities, communities that now extend all over the globe Parent Involvement in Developing Skills for Independence
