I would be interested in gathering ideas and experiences about teaching the visually impaired either in mainstreams of other settings. What works what doesn't with various individuals? How has RNIB contact and/or resources helped in any way? Have any other sight charities/local authorities helped in a practical sense? What training do you feel you need as a teacher to adapt to these students needs? I'm not an 'official' person for any particular company or charity - this is not corporate reseatch - just another teacher - an individual affected by sight loss herself ( now restored by surgery but not sure for how long and questions about the future etc) and my own personal experience created quite considerable will/drive to attempt to change things for the better, or at least question how society adapts or fails to - as the emphasis seems to be on the individual to adapt and not the other way around. as there seems very little practical support out there.
