Profile: Jennifer Perry
I am a clinical faculty member at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX. My students are trained to rehabilitate individuals who are blind or who have low vision. The students will learn Braille, how to use a white cane, how to use accessible technology, how to make accessible classrooms, and how to facilitate independence overall.
In 2017, I began pursuing doctoral studies at Stephen F. Austin State University for Educational Leadership. I hope to pursue research related to global trends in blindness, and I would like influence policy change surrounding funding for adults with disabilities as well as to influence policy related to accreditation of universities who do the work in the much needed field of preparing professionals and practitioners of blind rehabilitation.
