The American Association of Blind Teachers, formerly the National Association of blind Teachers, is a non-profit organization affiliated with the American Council of the Blind.
Our members, most of whom are blind or visually impaired, teach a wide range of subjects on all levels from elementary to graduate school. While some members are itinerant teachers of the visually impaired and others work in traditional residential schools for the blind, most of our members teach in either the conventional public school or college classroom.
Throughout the year, AABT conducts workshops and "teachers' lounge" sessions via telephone on Sunday evenings at 8:00 Eastern. We hold an annual meeting as part of the ACB Conference and Convention each year in July. Our meeting includes a breakfast and presentations on a wide range of topics of interest to blind and visually impaired teachers. You can hear recordings of past programs on our AABT Programs and Workshops page.
