School teacher standing at the blackboard.

Question: If there is no telescope, how can you ensure a child with low vision can access the information on the blackboard?

Answer:

• The teacher can place the child with low vision as close to the blackboard as possible

• The teacher can ensure good contrast on the blackboard by cleaning it regularly, writing in a larger size, where possible, and organising the text clearly

• The teacher can say what she writes while she is writing it

• The child with low vision can copy from her friend’s notebook

• A friend can say the words on the board so the child with low vision can hear and write them down.
