Some people are very tactile, and others hate to be touched. In some cases, hands-on instruction may even be forbidden. And for now, social distancing demands we find a new way to teach physical skills while at least 6 feet apart and may even have to rely on the internet and camera as our only contact. In this webinar Taylor McCaffrey, Orientation and Mobility Specialist for Guide Dogs UK, joins Theresa McKeon, as they discuss the important skill of teaching without physical prompts or assistance. Taylor will share her exciting work using TAGteach tools to create hands-off instruction for her visually impaired clients. “When someone has a visual impairment, it is no longer simply about the persons preference, it may impact learning. Physical prompts or assistance may distract the learner, it may startle the learner, or it could even impact the natural movement of their body.” We will start the conversation with: What are the benefits of hands-off instruction for learners and teachers? How can TAG points help transition from physical prompts. When, where, how and why to “capture” a behavior Making the most of the audible marker
