AHEAD Journal - Issue 2

In Issue 2, we hear from blind psychiatrist Dr. Timothy Cordes on perceptions & neuroplasticity, from Dr. Michael Seery on the pros & cons of the flipped classroom approach, we get outcomes from the latest research on the transition to college of blind and visually impaired students, we hear Kerry Pace's management strategies for Dyspraxia and get a European view on international mobility of students with disabilities from our colleagues in SIHO (Belgium). We've packed all this and much more into our latest edition which spans over 100 pages and features articles, illustrations and infographics from across the world. We hope you enjoy it!
