Scientists have been working hard to bring about a time in the future when we can grow “an eye in a dish” and use it for transplantation to restore the vision of someone who is blind, and they are not as far off as you might think.
Hope you all had a fabulous Easter Holidays :)
Do you have difficulties explaining the concept of a bird to your child who has a visual impairment or learning disabilities.
This post today looks at how you can explain the concept of a bird to a child who is blind, and for the purposes of this blog and for Scarlett, a child who also has additional learning needs.
This fun craft activity can be adapted to suit any child's needs and the learning possibilities are endless.
