Training on Early Intervention for children with Visual impairment, supported by the FFVI PDF Print E-mail



In Cooperation with the Finnish Federation of the Visually Impaired (FFVI), BASR conducted a two-day follow up training on early intervention for 12 preschool teachers from six special schools for the visually impaired in the West bank and 2 vision rehabilitation instructors from BASR.

The training was led by two Finish experts and dealt with the following topics:

Violent behavior of children with visual impairment and how to deal with it?

Producing tactile teaching material for children with visual impairment, aged 5-7 years, to improve their fine motor skills.

The needed tools for teaching math to students with low vision and students with total vision loss.

Ideas for teaching sports to students with visual impairment

Basics on orientation for children with visual impairment

How to support and cooperate with the parents of children with visual impairment


In addition to the two-day training, the participating preschool teachers also received on-the-job training for one day each.

At the end of the training period, the participating teachers highlighted the need for more trainings like this and particularly trainings tackling the topic of Orientation & Mobility, as they lack experience in this field.
