LOCYP: 2223012 - Recruitment of a Teacher for the Visually Impaired

This decision has been taken so the Service can:-
- Maintain support for the increased number of pre-school children who require visual stimulation programmes to maximise visual development. This can have a lifelong impact on the individual child and on the future support needed from our Service.
-To avoid the reduction of our “Understanding My Vision” programme. This will impact on children’s developing understanding of their visual needs and their successful transition from primary to secondary education and secondary to post 16 education.
- Start to provide to students in non-secondary school post 16 provisions meaning who currently have no qualified support for their visual needs including those relating to curriculum access, careers guidance, university applications, habitation support and support for emotional wellbeing.
