Independently Accessing Print Material as a Visually Impaired Learner

Help me give my students who are visually impaired better visual access to reading material in the middle school with a lighted magnifier dome to use in darkened classrooms when teachers are displaying material from their computers.

My Students

My student is a Visually Impaired student at a Title I school . He has an eye disease called Stargardt’s Disease, a form of juvenile macular degeneration which is progressive. He is a very determined, intuitive, and intelligent student. His near vision has decreased this past year, and he now needs a larger display calculator for math assignments and standardized tests. This will help reduce his visual fatigue. A lighted magnifier will enable him to access regular print without relying on teachers to enlarge worksheets, etc. for him.

My Project

My Visually Impaired student is in a Title I school. A lighted magnifier will enable him to access near print material independently in varying light conditions without having to ask for his teacher to enlarge materials for him. It is not a large print world out there and our VI students need to learn how to use their low vision devices now, so that as adults they are not dependent upon on sighted people, especially in the workplace. A large button calculator will enable my student to independently solve math problems in class, on tests, and for homework eliminating visual fatigue.
