Teaching Students with Visual Impairments
In order to successfully read print, the student must be provided with print that is legible. Not only should there be a consideration for the typestyle and fonts that are used, but there must be a consideration for the quality of copies. In an effort to conserve money, many schools set copiers and printers to print at low resolutions. The quality of print that is produced becomes an obstacle for students who can otherwise successfully access standard print. Additionally, there is a trend of teachers reducing the pages in order to fit two pages on one page, thus conserving paper. Teachers need to be aware that this cannot be an option for students with visual impairments.
