Challenges for students with vision impairments

Negative perception of people with low vision


Charity case

Not capable

Teacher treats me differently

Takes it easy on me

I'm not stupid

I'm not fragile!


Teacher doesn't understand technologies that help

Teachers should be trained

Can't afford aids at home

Activities take longer

I need to be given more time

Reading aids slow me down

Braille helps but my teacher is not trained

Makes it hard to recognise words & become a good speller

Heavily use screen reader


I can't get the books I want

CCTV/readers take too long

Extra help needed with DVDs

an audio description would be good

I always have to wait for class readers


Treated differently

Just want to fit in

Classmates think I'm different

A human right!

My school should make it happen


I want to do everything everyone in my class does

I love working with my friends in class but they are in different groups

I like playing sport but sometimes it is hard to orientate myself


No one else understands

No other students in school with low vision

Need role models

Advice from others with same vision

Feelings of isolation

I can achieve anything!

I don't want an aide to help me in class

I can do it on my own

I can be a superstar at sport!

Small changes to the game would help

I can do things independently

And with help from my friends

How can my teacher help?

Help eliminate peer prejudices

Encourage positive social interactions

Appropriate time allowances

Cater to different learning styles

Undergo training in assistive technologies

Have belief in my capabilities

Listen to my views


People sometimes tease me

Not chosen in competitive sport

People leave me out of playtime
