As well as being a teacher, I am the parent of a vision impaired student. I urge other classroom teachers to contact experts in the EEN field whenever they have questions or concerns. Blindness is a rather low incidence disability, and there are many teachers who have had little or no experience in teaching a blind child. The nearest school for the visually handicapped can also be a great source of information. They can offer suggestions such as adaptations for mobility in the classroom or ways to make lessons more of a hands-on experience rather than purely visual. Contacting people with knowledge in the field is not a sign of weakness or lack of knowledge on our part, but rather a sign that we are willing to learn and ready to adapt for the child.
