Approximately 70 teachers of the visually impaired from across Florida met in a chilly Tampa, FL, on February 16 - 17 to participate in an APH National Instructional Partnerships (NIP) event, held in partnership with Ex Officio Trustee Suzanne Dalton and the Florida Instructional Materials Center for the Visually Impaired. The two day event, led by Dr. LaRhea Sanford, focused on the Functional Vision Assessment/Learning Media Assessment, authored by Dr. Sanford and Dr. Rebecca Burnett. Participants received training in the use of the assessment tool, which will be available as an APH product in the coming months.

NIP events are designed to showcase the use of APH products across the areas of the Core Curriculum and the Expanded Core Curriculum. If you are interested in partnering with APH to bring an "expert" to your area, please contact Janie Blome by calling 800-223-1839, ext 367, or emailing jblome@aph.org
