This site has been collaboratively developed by Penrickton Center for the Blind in Taylor, Michigan, Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, Massachusetts, and Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Austin, Texas.
Perkins School for the Blind offers resources for educators and families, as well as professional development opportunities for anyone interested in children and youth who are blind, visually impaired, deafblind or with multiple disabilities.
LilliWorks Active Learning Foundation is a primary source of information on Active Learning (AL) and the sole source of Active Learning equipment authorized by Dr. Lilli Nielsen in North America. As a nonprofit, LilliWorks’ mission is to advance Active Learning through supply of equipment, education, outreach and research. LilliWorks is dedicated to the Active Learning principle that “Everyone Can Learn“.
Narbethong State Special School in Queensland, Australia, follows the methodology of the late Lili Nielsen's Active Learning, following the basic premise that unless the student performs the actions themselves and develops the prerequisite developmental skills, it is very difficult to teach a student functional activities. They have generously shared information from their website.
The site works best with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. It does not work as well with Internet Explorer.
