Together we will investigate the challenges facing students with Vision Impairment and their teachers in Mathematics; primary aged students in the morning and secondary in the afternoon. Strategies and ideas for supporting Mathematics students who use large print, screen readers and braille will be workshopped, and resources for optimising accessibility explored.
This one day course will provide a broad overview of vision. It will begin by exploring the anatomy of the visual system and normal visual development. The common eye conditions that occur in childhood will be reviewed alongside the clinical assessment commonly applied to diagnose these conditions.
This seminar will provide advice and information about Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD) including a review of ANSD, pre-implant candidacy and habilitation approaches for clients who receive a CI and are diagnosed with ANSD
What kinds of information is used at your school? How much of this information is readily available to your students with vision impairment? Not all information used in schools is accessible. Students now use a range of formats and media to access a wide range of information. Students who have vision impairment will only achieve equal access when information presented follows inclusive design principles.
