Visual Impairment Awareness Training
How do I support a visually impaired person?
Will they be offended if I use visual language such as “see you later”?
How do I guide someone with sight loss?
How can I ensure my business is accessible for people with sight loss?
If these are questions you find yourself asking then Visualise Training and Consultancy can help.
We deliver specialist visual impairment awareness training to increase understanding when communicating with and assisting visually impaired customers and employees. The training is designed to give participants an insight into the barriers that visually impaired people may face and to gain an understanding of how participants can help to remove these barriers. This will give staff the confidence and skills to better assist and support those living with sight loss.
The course is interactive and engaging, allowing participants to take a hands-on approach in becoming confident when supporting visually impaired people. All of our training is bespoke to meet your organisational needs.
Subjects that we cover:
- Eye conditions and their effects
- Emotional impact of sight loss
- How to assist and guide a visually impaired or blind person
- Effective communication and appropriate language
- Reasonable adjustments
- Accessible buildings and environments
- The importance of eye health
We visit your organisation and deliver training on-site at your convenience. If off-site training would be more appropriate for your organisation’s needs, we can arrange for the use of a training facility closest to you.
