This page features new titles recently added to the PRCVI Library. Registered teachers of students with visual impairments (TSVIs) can request these titles on behalf of students by logging in to their borrower account. A complete list of recently added items can be found on the main page of the online catalogue.

Hands-On Science Kits

We've added several hands-on kits related to science subjects to our catalogue. These kits allow students to work one-on-one with a teacher or in small groups to better understand concepts such as amino acids, enzymes, neuronal connections, and water concepts at the molecular level.

Accessible LEGO Kit

An exciting addition to LEGO's experience has been a recent project to make building instructions accessible. PRCVI has added a basic kit to the PRCVI library that can be used in conjunction with a student's access technology to read building instructions in braille or audio formats.

 

Sound Puzzles

PRCVI has added two sound puzzles to the library, one with a farm theme and one with a vehicles theme. These puzzles have pieces representing different animals or vehicles and make the sound effect of the respective objects when placed in the corresponding cutout in the puzzle board.

About the author

Jen Jesso

I have worked in various roles in the field of visual impairment since 2007. In addition to working as a teacher of students with visual impairments, I recently completed coursework to become an orientation and mobility specialist. I have been fortunate to work with the fantastic team at PRCVI since 2014.

I enjoy many aspects of my role at PRCVI, but highlights include working with teachers of students with visual impairments and their students on outreach visits and working on PRCVI initiatives and projects.

Outside of work, my interests include reading, computer programming, swimming, and spending time with friends and family.
