When a child has a visual impairment, learning and development may need to be supported throughout the school years. Often, children require some training and instruction from teachers who specialize in working with blind and visually impaired students. Your child might also need certain accommodations, like books or materials in a format like braille or a seat near the front or back of the class, in order to participate fully in the classroom and in extracurricular activities.
