The Visual Impairment Team (VIT) promotes the educational inclusion and achievement of children and young people with visual impairment from the time of diagnosis to when they leave school or further education. The team works with children in their homes, early years settings, local schools, or further education settings.

We conduct assessments and provide advice and training building knowledge and skills to support development and achievement as well as provide direct support and teaching as appropriate including specialist skills such as braille, touch typing, use of low vision aids, improved use of functional vision, mobility and independence skills.

VIT are part of Learning Inclusion and is made up of:

Qualified Teachers of the Visually Impaired (QTVIs)
Specialist Children and Families Officers
Resource Officers
Rehabilitation Officer
