Five-year-old with visual impairment returns to school

Children with sight loss should be given more support when schools return, a charity has said. Visually impaired children will face challenges including maintaining social distancing, knowing where to sit and stand and needing to be physically guided. Schools and local authorities must ensure children have support as they return, Guide Dogs said. The charity has been calling for children with sight loss to receive specialist support, so they can return to the classroom “with confidence”.
