Overview

This book sets out the basis for addressing the individual needs of children with a wide range of visual impairments within the Code of Practice. It includes information about opthalmics; the identification and assessment of aspects of vision, and the role of different agencies likely to be involved; a comprehensive range of practical strategies; and advice on the use of low vision aids, appropriate decor and physical layouts, lighting conditions and equipment, and relevant IT. Drawing on recent research, this book argues that it is the quality of the child's social interactions which promotes play, language and learning. This is a highly accessible text addressed to parents, teachers and those who support schools professionally.
