Wandsworth Vision Support Service provides support to any children within our school who have a visual impairment.  Those children whose visual impairment is minor will be supported without the need for an EHCP, while those who will require a higher level of support may need assessment for an EHCP.


The service seeks to ensure that children with visual impairments are fully included in their classes and our school.  

Support content is dependent on need but is likely to include assessment and advice to school staff as well as direct work with your child.
