Teaching by the Vision Impairment team

On Friday 26th April we were delighted  to welcome Abi Hall, senior teacher for the Vision Impairment, SEND team, working for the City of York Council.

Abi explained that she had been teaching for two decades in both main stream and special educational needs primary schools. In 2017 she began post graduate studies to specialise as a teacher for children and young people with visual impairment, taking up her current role in 2019. Since then the team has expanded to cover the needs of children and families in the city.

Abi described her role teaching the Visually Impaired as being challenging but at the same time very rewarding. She demonstrated with the aid of slides and video clips some of the methods adopted to help the children learn new skills including braille and electronic equipment. All very interesting and delivered in a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable manner.

The Playgroup, which the club supported with a grant, is a great success and the equipment we supplied was proving to be very useful.

Abi proved to be an excellent speaker and answered the questions that were raised at the end very well. There is no doubt her personality and drive will have a large bearing on the success of the project.
