Research carried out by Rachel Hewett and Graeme Douglas from the Visual Impairment Centre for Teaching and Research (VICTAR) has been featured in the November/December issue (36) of 'Insight' the leading magazine for parents and professionals supporting children and young people with visual impairment published by the RNIB www.rnib.org.uk/insightmagazine
The research, funded by the RNIB, follows a group of 80 blind and partially sighted young people as they move on from compulsory education and move onto further and higher education, training and employment. It’s still early days but the project is already revealing how the students see their lives and what could be done differently to help them.
