Working groups

There is currently one working group looking at Early years education for children who are visually impaired.

Previous working groups have looked at the issues facing parents of young children who are deaf and young children who are visually impaired. The Centre has produced a play DVD and a 'working together' document for families and professions involved with deaf children and a "Let Me Play" DVD for families with children who are visually impaired.
