Helpful Resources

Staff at Ulster University have developed resources for professionals and carers of people with visual difficulties. These web pages have been set up primarily to inform patients, parents, teachers, carers and other professionals who have received visual acuity details relating to children with visual impairment. They have been developed in response to questions from parents and others working with visually impaired children regarding what these children can be expected to see.
