Supporting Visual Impairment

We are running weekly visual impairment drop in sessions for the children with VI to enjoy lights, sound and touch. The boys had a lovely time today, stimulating their vision and making use of their senses - look at these smiles!

Teacher Tracy, who is a qualified teacher for the visually impaired (QTVI) has set up this lovely space as a vision room to support learners.

As well as lights, switches and tactile resources, there is a fabulous inflatable piano that actually plays notes - which is very popular! All of these things help our special learners to develop skills and work with some independence.
