Children with a visual impairment (5 - 16 years old)

Herefordshire Council's visual impairment team provides specialist teaching and support for children and young people who have a significant visual impairment. They can also provide mobility and independence training by a qualified rehabilitation officer.

Your child will usually be referred to the visual impairment team by the hospital eye unit. For information about diagnosis visit the Wye Valley NHS Trust's ophthalmology page. Occasionally your child's school or another professional working with your child may make a referral to the visual impairment team.

For more information about the services available to support your child in school visit the visual impairment page on the Herefordshire Council website.
