Scheme launched to help support visually impaired children in schools
A new scheme launched on Thursday aims to help 3,500 visually impaired children with home learning. Launched by the charity Guide Dogs, ‘Tech for All’ will provide iPads to children aged 3-18 in UK who are blind or partially sighted. This is aiming stimulating learning styles that are the most effective way of learning for many children with visual impairment. This comes as figures indicate that blind and partially sighted children have limited access to technology in mainstream schools.
