What assistive technology is available for my child?

There are a range of ways in which access to technology is made possible for children with vision impairment, such as the enlargement of text on screen, audio/voice features or using an electronic braille display.

In some cases the access features are built into a mainstream device, in other cases specialist software or hardware can be added to a computer or device to make it accessible.  

Your Local Authority Vision Impairment Teaching service/Qualified Teacher of children with Vision Impairment (QTVI) can advise you about the most appropriate options on how your child might use technology for their learning.

Guide Dogs have an access technology team that provides advice on choosing the most appropriate technology and sensory equipment to help children and young people with a vision impairment to study and play. Further information can be found on Guide Dogs assistive technology and grants webpages.
