EIASE Vision and Adaptive PE departments attended a workshop in Urbana. The workshop was the Step by Step program presented by Paul Ponchillia, author and professor at Western Michigan University. EIASE staff attended a morning session where they learned how to provide a systematic set of commands through auditory and tactile formats to help students learn how to perform basic physical exercise. Knowledge of these simple movements will allow the students to participate in PE and sports.
In the afternoon several students from our vision program joined the workshop. The students were taught the Step by Step movements through the instruction of Mr. Ponchillia and the EIASE staff. It was a great day of learning for both students and staff!
