SEN and Disabilities Seminar Series 2022/23

Presented by Gwyneth McCormack, Director of Positive Eye

The seminar will raise awareness of the impact of visual impairment on the child’s learning and development and on their access to the curriculum. Practical strategies and application of appropriate resources to enable access and to positively support the inclusion of the child within the school or setting will be delivered through an interactive approach.

Gwyneth McCormack’s background working as a Qualified Teacher of Visual Impairments (VI) extends over 20 years, as both a teacher of VI and as a Head of a Peripatetic Support Service for VI, supporting children and young people with VI in homes, early years settings, schools and colleges. She is now the Director of Positive Eye which she established in September 2008 to provide an educational consultancy and training service for professionals who work with children and young people with visual impairment, both in the UK and Europe. In addition, Gwyn has also developed a unique product range written, published and sold through Positive Eye to meet the needs of practitioners working with children with VI.
