This course is intended to provide participants with the competencies required to assist in supporting learners with vision loss in the learning environment.
Independence in everyday routines is an expectation for adulthood, and much of our childhood is spent learning and mastering all those skills that enable independence. For children and teenagers who are blind or have low vision that journey towards independence may follow a route that’s different to their sighted peers, and is therefore unfamiliar and potentially challenging for families. Some skills are difficult to learn in the absence of vision, and their development might be delayed
This day will present a focus on early identification of eye and vision problems in children aged 0-5 years, through the practice of vision surveillance and vision screening. Current surveillance and screening protocols will be discussed in the broad context of identification of eye and vision conditions.
