Webinar – Essential IT Skills for Children with Vision Impairments in Education

IT skills are vital for a student with vision impairment to access education independently, if they are put in place in a timely manner, they can ensure your child is fully integrated into school life and not dependent on someone to help them all the time.
In this webinar Edel Doherty Vision Ireland (formerly NCBI) Children and Young Persons Team will talk us through what  works and doesn’t work, what core skills need to be put in place when based on her experience. Edel has worked with children from pre-school to university, this gives her a unique insight into every stage in education and how to future proof.
Eithne Walsh, Féach’s Communication and Advocacy Manager, mother of 2 college going students with vision impairment will introduce Féach’s new AT/IT audit tool. This tool  aims to provide a roadmap of what skills need to be in place when. The parent and teacher can work together to ensure these skills are put in place in a timely manner. While there is no one size fits all in education there are core competencies that are needed to ensure access continues as the student moves through education.
