Guidance for practitioners

The Visual Impairment and Autism Project, which ran from September 2008 to March 2011, was established to provide guidance for practitioners working with children who have both visual impairment and autism. This guidance was made available in the Resource Pack which was published as a CD-ROM by RNIB in May 2011. This sold out at the end of 2012. The material was then posted on the RNIB website but was taken down early in 2014 during the up-dating of the whole RNIB website.

Good news! The guidance material is now available again. It can be downloaded from the RNIB website in a zipped file. This is the material as originally provided on the CD-ROM, so it is still known as the “resource pack”.

Providing the original material in this form will be a temporary measure pending the completion of work on the revised and expanded material. Unfortunately, the revision and expansion task has proved to be bigger and more time-consuming than at first envisaged. But progress is being made and the new version will be posted early in 2015.

God fearing, loving mother to an awesome young man. Enjoying what I do! Although I'm not the greatest teacher, however raising a child with special needs has given me more degrees than any college university you could think of.

Would love to hear from!
