Welcome to the toolkits page of the NABS Resource Center! Below you will find various links to compilations of helpful information, resources, and tools gathered by the National Federation of the Blind that may be helpful to blind students. Each link will direct you to a different toolkit with a specific topic that the listed resources support. These toolkits are free and their focus range from self-advocacy in higher education, high-stakes testing environments, etc.
Self-Advocacy In Higher Education
This toolkit is designed for blind students seeking to better understand the higher education accommodation request process, mitigate access barriers on campus, and ultimately succeed in their higher educational pursuits.
High-Stakes Testing Self-Advocacy
The need for high-stakes testing accommodations begins as early as high school entrance exams and continues beyond college graduation to include professional licensure assessments. In every case, these exams help to steer individuals toward or away from their educational or career goals. This toolkit provides information and resources to help students advocate for themselves in high-stakes testing environments.
Student’s Legislative Toolkit
This toolkit aims to inform and equip blind students across the country with knowledge of legislation that is crucial to achieving equality in and out of the classroom. Included are guides on facilitating legislative workshops, writing personal testimonies, approaching universities for support, and how to prepare for our annual Washington seminar.
