Eyes and Independence
Did you know that 2B pencils are darker than the standard HB that are usually on the book list? So for a child with low vision, 2B are easier to read.
How will your child pick out his/her lunchbox when placed on a table? Can there be something unique about the lunchbox to make it more recognisable? (Perhaps, a tactual sticker, particular color or marking)
Will your child recognise his/her own school bag? If they are uniform ones, what has been placed on the bag to differentiate from others? (Tactual keytag, press button sound tag, ribbon attached to the handle)
Any questions about 'Back to School' ? Write in the comments or send an email to 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
They will be okay...
