Blindness and low vision lead to a set of consequences in everyday life and require various adaptations so that visual impaired persons grow in a secure, rich and appropriate environment. This brochure, realized by field professionals from the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind specialized in the support of visually impaired persons, should be considered as a toolbox offering the basis for the first steps with a visually impaired person.
Theoretical and practical elements are addressed throughout the reading in order to help professionals who care for these persons in daily reality from an educational point of view as well as on rehabilitation and academic skills.
This book is English translation from an initial French version.

With the contribution of Gwénola Amyot, Anne Bické, Stéphanie Cassel, Régine Gréant, Dr Christine Kestens, Valérie Leloup, Pierre Muraille, Ana Navarro, Anne-Françoise Rens, Cécile Sermon, Damien Talbot, Ariane Van Luchene, Damienne Vernier
