POPDB team touring the PRCVI collection

On Wednesday, January 16th the team from the Provincial Outreach Program for Students with Deafblindness (POPDB) came for a morning of meetings and a tour of the PRCVI collection. Since PRCVI and POPDB follow the same Ministry of Education qualification criteria for visual impairment, all students registered with POPDB are eligible for registration with PRCVI. The PRCVI outreach and POPDB teams discussed new areas for collaboration and strategies to ensure that students with deafblindness have access to PRCVI materials. Our team at PRCVI was delighted to host our POPDB friends and look forward to strengthening and extending our partnership through shared initiatives, such as Transdisciplinary Play-Based Assessment

About the author

Adam Wilton

I have been fortunate to learn and grow with students with visual impairments since 2007, working as a teacher of students with visual impairments (TSVI), Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist (COMS) and most recently as the Program Manager of PRCVI and ARC-BC. I completed a PhD in Special Education at the University of British Columbia in 2017 where my research focused on the administrative determinants of workloads for itinerant TSVIs.   

One of my favourite aspects of my current role is delivering outreach support to my colleagues and their students from across British Columbia. I've been fortunate to have many exciting adventures in schools and communities across the province and I hope you enjoy following along through #outreaching!

When I'm not on the road, I enjoy learning to play the violin, collecting antique books, and spending time surrounded by trees.
