Training Simulation Videos: “Hello. Is Anybody Here?”

The Iowa Department for the Blind (IDB) has developed this fun and educational training for other agencies and organizations. WINTAC (Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center) and the IDB team have collaborated to create a series of short videos and a facilitator’s guide so the training can be replicated elsewhere.  State Vocational Rehabilitation agencies focusing primarily on serving individuals who are blind or visually impaired are great resources to their Workforce partners, building their capacity to include those individuals in their services. Many of these agencies provide support to partner staff through training and discussion to increase their comfort and competency in this area.  These agencies include public libraries.
