The vision impairment team support babies, children and students with a visual impairment, their families and carers. The support is offered from the point of diagnosis throughout the early years and at pre-school level, through to further and higher education, where post school provision is made by Worcestershire Access and Inclusion Service, F/HE.
As part of the service offer commissioned by the local authority we provide assessment, monitoring and review of children and young people based on eligibility criteria.
Schools and settings can purchase additional support where the needs of the child/young person do not meet the threshold for support commissioned by the Local Authority for Worcestershire. Visit vision impairment support for further information on what is delivered as part of our traded offer.
