How can I adapt my teaching to include a child with vision impairment in my class?

Teaching a blind or partially sighted child is not as scary as you might think - a lot of it comes down to common sense and planning ahead.

Your first move should be to seek the advice of a Qualified Teacher of Children with Vision Impairment (QTVI) from your local authority’s Visual Impairment Service. Their role is to assess children's visual needs and to advise on curriculum access strategies. You may also find it useful to consult our guides in our teaching and learning section.
