Differentiation Strategies Relating to the Inclusion of a Student with a Severe Visual Impairment in Higher Education (Modern Foreign Languages)
Lewin-Jones, Jenny; Hodgson, Joe
British Journal of Visual Impairment, v22 n1 p32-36 2004
A teacher of modern foreign languages (MFL) and a teacher of the visually impaired working in a university college explore and examine the needs of a student with a severe visual impairment embarking upon a course in German. This article sets out to illustrate the needs of both the student and the teachers. It also reflects upon some of the problems facing teachers in higher education (HE) when meeting a severely visually impaired (VI) student for the first time. The resultant case study offers insight into the process required to maintain academic standards while fully including the student in the course. (Contains 2 online resources.)
