The Vision Book: My Child, Our Journey – Te Puka Moemoeā: Tōku Tamaiti, Tō Tātou Huarahi is a new book for parents, caregivers, families and whānau of children and young people who are blind, deafblind or have low vision.
It has education information about the people, help and services that are available, right from those early years all the way through to early adulthood. Families, whānau and people living with a vision impairment also share their stories and insights. It’s a great resource to keep on hand, and it’s been written so that you can dip into it whenever you need it.
It has been written by the Ministry of Education with help from the Ministry of Health, Blind and Low Vision Education Network NZ (BLENNZ), the Blind Foundation, community groups, parents and professionals throughout New Zealand.
