Growing Up & Moving On

Author: Elaine Kelleher

Publisher: Sight Cymru


Description: Anecdotal evidence suggests that some young visually impaired (VI) people may have a good level of education but lack independence and life skills needed to move onto the next phase of their lives. Reports from some individuals reflect that there is a lack of information about services and entitlements, lack of skills training and lack of support. This report presents a picture of how VI specialist services are addressing the mobility, independent living and social skills needs of children and young people. It maps habilitation, specialist social work and LEA support across Wales.
