The Curriculum Framework for Children and Young People with Vision Impairment (CFVI) has been developed to support children and young people with vision impairment have access to an appropriate and equitable education. The CFVI can be used to empower parents and carers to understand the pathways of support for their child and the services who may be involved in providing that support within a given nationwide context. This increased understanding of the areas of focus for a child’s learning, development and wider participation and the common language and shared vocabulary that the CFVI provides, should help enable parents to feel more comfortable and confident when meeting professionals to discuss their child’s progress and participation in education and the wider world.

This session is for parents who are keen to develop a greater understanding of firstly the framework, and secondly how they can apply it to their child’s learning. Education can be a difficult time for children and parents, especially when it comes to understanding how the curriculum can be adapted to meet the needs of vision impaired children. This framework has been designed to eradicate grey areas and parents are able to use this now to maximise their child’s learning opportunities and to ensure settings are inclusive.

Caireen Sutherland, QTVI and Curriculum Framework for Children Young People with Vision Impairment (CFVI) Sponsor will be joining us for a presentation on the CFVI – what it is – why we need it and how it may be of use to you and your child. If you have any questions, please do submit those ahead of the event below; there will also be time to answer general questions on the evening. Caireen is very pleased to be meeting with parents to share this piece of work and the potential it has.
