ENSURE CHILDREN WITH VI ARE INCLUDED IN 2017 – WITH POSITIVE EYE’S REASONABLE ADJUSTMENTS CHARTER PACK

As we begin a new term and New Year this month, make one of your school resolutions easy to achieve with Positive Eye’s brand new product – the Reasonable Adjustments Charter Pack

This is a practical resource which will help your school focus on meeting the needs of children with vision impairments (VI) in your care by providing all the tools and guidelines you need to work as a team to identify roles and responsibilities and embed them into the school curriculum.

The pack contains two colourful charters – Reasonable Adjustments and Vision Friendly Classrooms – which identify the areas which need to be addressed and can be displayed clearly both to demonstrate your school’s commitment to equality in education and to serve as a reminder of the everyday adjustments that must be made.

An interactive Roles and Responsibilities board is also included, with a comprehensive selection of activity tickets, detailing the tasks necessary to include a child with VI in line with the Equality Act 2010.

Your team can work together to create a chart which helps everyone to identify their own responsibilities and those of others, enabling you to enable the child.  A Provision Plan also helps ensure a comprehensive – and measurable – approach.

Roles and Responsibilities Activity

The Reasonable Adjustments Charter Pack will help your school to understand what you need to take into account to include a child with VI and promotes a deeper understanding of the child’s needs.  It then sets out a simple and strategic approach to help you achieve this.

The pack comes in hardcopy with an accompanying CD which includes Action Plan templates and examples, a Quality First Teaching Audit and resources for self-reflection.
