Ogden, Utah (July 10, 201) – Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind (USDB) Robbin Clark and her team are teaching about 30 students who are blind or visually impaired to learn a variety of skills designed specifically for their unique needs. The  series of activities will take place at Weber State University and at the Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind campus in Ogden. The activities will be underway throughout the week, a great time to catch the action is 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.  on Wednesday July 10. This will be an action- packed event.

The students come from USDB campuses in Ogden and Salt Lake, but also from local schools around the state, as we support many of those students as well, with resources  and Teachers of Students of the Visually Impaired. 

Some of these activities will be videotaped for the International Camp Abilities program which hopes to share some of Utah’s best practices with other blind education programs across the country and around the world.  What a great compliment to Utah.
