Children with vision impairments go into their secondary school behind their peers for the sole reason they have not had the correct input; parents and schools do not know about the options available. They need alternative formats that are near to what their friends use as they do not like to feel different - they need to fit in and you can help by producing work that doesn't make them feel that there is something terribly wrong with them. If it is on the laptop it has their friends saying - wow that is cool.
