The Atlantic – Lauren Kahn is used to spending her whole day on the floor. She works at the Queens Center for Progress, teaching nonverbal 3- and 4-year-olds with intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorder, several of whom have visual impairments as well.

Instructing her students is an impossible task from afar, so Kahn is trying to teach their parents to teach.
