What is the NOAH SchoolKit?
The SchoolKit provides information and resources to guide parents in supporting general education teachers when a student with albinism will be in their classroom during the upcoming school year. The kit is divided into five sections with instructions and suggestions on how to use the information within it. Sections include informational sheets for teachers, documents to help guide conversations between parents and educators and templates for student involvement in conversations and advocacy.
The NOAH SchoolKit was designed in collaboration with a team of teachers from the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
