Takeaways for ECPs in examining, diagnosing and assisting those with learning difficulties to improve outcomes for life
Lisa will be talking about her work at SeeAbility and how they focus on children with greater need- learning disabilities and autism. She will also reference specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia /dyspraxia and the difference between the two levels of learning difficulty and why eye care is so important for children with either.
She will highlight the issue of diagnostic overshadowing (behaviours caused by poor vision being wrongly attributed to someone’s learning disability).
Discuss the SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) white paper published this month, Vision screening recommendations/services, the Special SchoolsEye Care service and SeeAbility’s campaign for equitable services for children and adults in the community (the LOCSU learning disability pathway).
