The modifications and supports listed can make life easier for students with visual challenges. Implement as you see appropriate for each individual student:

  • Make larger print available

  • Allow for visual breaks during sustained near point work

  • Reduce the number of items on the page

  • Allow students more time for copying from the board and/or move students closer to the chalkboard, or place material to be copied on his/her desk

  • Furnish “fat” pencils and crayons or use special pencil grips

  • Provide slanted reading surfaces

  • Provide natural lighting and full spectrum bulbs

  • Write large with dark ink on overhead projectors/white boards

  • Provide students with a bookmark to help keep place when using a standardized scan sheet/Scantron, have someone fill in the sheet for the student or do not require the use of a scan sheet/Scantron

  • Provide “highlighter” markers to help with reading

  • Allow more time for timed tests

  • Give students a choice about reading aloud to a group

  • Recesses are very important for children with vision problems

This is a general listing of modifications for a classroom environment. After a child’s initial evaluation, Dr. Bauernfiend will provide specific recommendations.
