Front Cover
Routledge, 1997 - Education - 462 pages
0 Reviews
Written for parent and professionals working with children and young people with visual impairment, this work examines the causes of eye conditions and additional disabilities; how these can restrict access to the mainstream curriculum; and ways in which the effects can be ameliorated. Central to the text is entitlement. National Curriculum areas are discussed, and attention is given to both the hidden curriculum and specialist curriculum and extra curricula activities, and to the competencies required by staff working with these children and young people.
