Support for your child

We will offer support in your child's school. Our aim is to help your child access the school curriculum and safely access the school environment.

We will do this by:

  • visiting schools with you and supporting the transition to a new school
  • regularly assessing your child's functional vision
  • providing specialist visual impairment equipment

We will support the school by:

  • giving advice about the environment and any adaptations required
  • advising on modifications of learning materials
  • advising on special arrangements for school assessments or exams
  • training for all those involved with the child
  • advising on target setting for the child
  • providing direct teaching to Braille users and training school staff to be able to meet the needs of Braille users
  • contributing to annual reviews of a child's Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
