Specialist teaching

School Visits (7)We recognise the importance of an additional curriculum for children and young people with a visual impairment in order to ensure that they learn specialist as well as everyday skills. With some children, we work regularly and on an individual basis to help them develop in these areas.

These specialist skills can include learning to read and write in Braille, developing independent life skills, improving mobility, tactual discrimination, listening skills, the ability to touch type as well as becoming proficient in the use of specialist software and equipment.

All of these areas are central not only to the children and young people’s educational success but also to their long-term life chances.
