Content and supplementary material

How will you use what you have learned today?
Set time aside to discuss how the resource can be used for VI staff particularly and also aspects that can support our work with children with a range of needs.
A valuable tool to enhance the development and learning of our pupils. I would 'dip in' to parts as required.
This will be an excellent tool to assess where a VI young child is at in the different development stages and where the next steps are.
Will be more aware of the development stage the children I work with are at.
Start using this with 0-3 year olds on my caseload.
This will enable me to work in a more specific way with some of the children on my caseload who are visually impaired - lots of excellent ideas on cards. One parent I can think of would be very receptive to work through the records.
