The Life and Silhouette of Laura Dewey Bridgman

Free November 2 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join us for a discussion on the life and silhouette of Laura Dewey Bridgman, the first person who was deaf and blind to learn language. This talk is led by Olivia Thompson, certified orientation and mobility specialist, teacher of students who are visually impaired or blind, and early intervention vision specialist with Jefferson County Schools and the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind’s Birmingham Regional Center. Thompson will also speak on her work in K-12 classrooms today and how teaching individuals who are visually impaired or blind has evolved.
