The Visual Impairment Service consists of specially trained teachers of visual impairment and support staff. We work with families, early years settings and schools to support children with a visual impairment aged 0-19.
We can offer:
We will visit your child at home or in school to assess their individual visual needs.
We make sure that your child’s work is adapted to allow them access to the curriculum and we can recommend resources they might need to succeed in school, including training in the use of relevant technology.
We will give your child individual support if required and work closely with school staff and parents to make sure your child’s visual and related emotional needs are met.
If necessary, we will teach your child Braille and ensure that any special arrangements required for external exams are in place.
Our Mobility Officer can provide training in safe travel and life skills both in school and the local environment.
