Visual impairment poses significant obstacles to a child’s learning because learning is normally dependent on visual information. In order to be able to assist a visually impaired student in the classroom, teachers have to understand the nature of visual impairments and the various effects they have on the child. This chapter discusses how visual impairment is defined and explains the causes and effects of various visual impairments, and then describes relevant strategies for teachers to work effectively with blind or low vision students in the classroom.

Keywords:   Visual impairment, Visually impaired student, Visual information
