If you have a child with a visual impairment joining your class, you may have questions about how best you can teach and help them.
Someone who is visually impaired may have useful vision remaining. You should speak with the child and their parents about the steps you can take together to ensure their educational needs are met and what adjustments will need to be made to the teaching environment to facilitate this.
Inherited sight loss is progressive and the child’s needs should be assessed and monitored as circumstances can change and they require further adjustments.
Your school SENCO and Local Education Authority should be able to provide guidance. Our Retina UK Helpline can provide information and signposting.
