If your a teacher,how can you help students with low vision?



Answers:
I use Ariel as my default font even though I do not have students with low vision, as my college instructor said it is easier for those with low vision to see. Times New Roman is a smaller font and not as blocky. You could also enlarge it to a 16 or more and it will still be very clear.

You also try printing on brightly colored paper. Experiment with printing on neon oranges and greens and blues, then ask the students which is easier to see. Try non-neon colors if neon doesn't work well. Many students find reading black on white difficult and this could help a lot. Print all of your handouts on the preferred color for all students so your student with LV don't feel singled out.

Many students with low vision have learned , or are learning, Braille. Companies offer Braille versions of books and materials. Find out if any of your students would benefit from such items.

Use a lot of videos and audio tapes/CDs to supplement the lessons. Many companies include these items when you order your curriculum (our U.S. History books have all chapters on CD and it came with the books), though some consider them a separate item that you have to pay for.

Seating is critical. Always make sure your students with low vision are seated as close to the board as possible. Make sure that the paths between desks and tables are as wide as possible and clear at all times. Make sure that the students know where everything is and that those locations do not change. Routine locations are essential for those with low vision, they learn where things are and can get to them by themselves.

I hope these suggestions help!

Make copies on bigger paper with a bigger font
Students with low vision need to be provided with larger font copies of anything written on the board, in a book, or passed out to other students.
