Play is essential for all children. For children with vision impairment, it is a key part of growing and learning.
Whether you are a parent, teacher or carer of a child with vision impairment, our guide will help you create fun-filled playtimes for your child to develop and explore their senses.
You will discover stimulating toys and find out how to create play environments to help you support your child as they grow, have fun and find out about the world around them.
The guide has been written with two parents, Karen Newell and Rebecca Atkinson, who both have extensive expertise in play for children with vision impairment. Karen co-ordinates the Facebook community Playful Explorations
for children with vision impairment and Rebecca is founder of the #toylikeme campaign
, which is calling on the global toy industry to positively represent kids with disabilities.
