I wonder if anyone can help me.
My son has a visually impairment due to his cp. His sight is ok, but the way his brain has to process the information means his reading is slow.
He has just started senior school and I am concerned about him being left behind.
Although the school has a dyslexia unit it has made no suggestions as to anything that might help him (perhaps because he doesn't come under that unit) to keep up - they just keep going on about him being an 'independant learner' - but how can he be that if he isn't given the tools to do that?
I am wondering if anyone has any hints, tips or stratigies that work for them? We are currently awaiting a new report from the Visual Impairment Team, but I'd like to get as much info for myself.
Also does anyone know if you can get text books on audio tape or cd?
