Imagine a child struggling through life trying to accomplish tasks considered to be ordinary for most children. In contrast to his piers this child however spends countless frustrating hours and enormous amounts of energy trying to learn new subjects and skills each day. This child quickly finds themselves discouraged by the enormity of the effort and the frustration felt by the lack of progress experienced anytime a learning challenge is encountered. These are common scenarios for children who are visually challenged today. This vision condition affects children’s ability to learn and hinders their overall personal development and growth, not to mention – their social interactive skills. According to Prevent Blindness, nearly 3% of children are blind or visually impaired and 80% of children diagnosed with learning disabilities or poor learning performance actually have a vision problem. The seriousness of this issue highlights the need for further understanding through research and education.
