Parties and Playdates - including a child with vision impairment in social activities

Children blow bubbles together on a sunny day

Playing and socialising is important for the development of all children.

For children with vision impairment, interacting with their peers gives them the opportunity to develop many vital social and communication skills.

Including first hand accounts from parents and young people, this guide suggests activities and adaptations for entertaining a child with vision impairment in your home as well as on visits to the cinema and elsewhere.

Whether you are preparing to host a party for your own child or - for someone with no experience of supporting a child with vision impairment - wanting advice around how to include them in a party or playdate, this resource will give you the inspiration you need to help all your guests enjoy a fun-filled day!
