Riven, am I correct in thinking your DD goes to a specialist school for her CP? If so, you would exect any school, particularly one that is specifically for children with specific needs to have appropriate equipment for the children.
I would raise it with the SENCO or HT. Maybe some fundraising could be organised to buy books in large print? I'm not suggesting you do it, I know you are busy enough, but might it be worth suggesting to the powers that be?
of course they should be catering for this and meeting your dd's needs. even if the school doesn't have any themselves, they could be liasing with local special schools or the LEA resource centers and find suitable resources.
I think that there has to be both inclusion and special schools. For some children inclusion is a complete and utter disaster.
For example if inclusion causes a child with autism to have a severe nervous breakdown then it would be stupid to put that child in another mainstream school. Or a school refuser or a child who has been permamently excluded for bad behaviour might be better with different type of education.
Many children with severe cerabral palsy thrive in mainstream. Many people with cerabral palsy are very bright.
I work in an MLD special school and most of the children love it. However I think it would be a disaster for a bright child who is just very physically disabled. The school has to match the child.
Just thinking Riven. I expect that your daughter's school will have quite a few big books that are used for group reading. Why don't you ask if you can borrow one of those.
dd gets mega support from school She has magnifier,fluorescent light and darker lined exercise books and thick pencils. The class teachers also attended visual impairment workshops and take ultra care with DD
Do you have a visual impairment service doing risk assessments?
What about statementing? This would help school cover cost of enlarging Perhaps? How impaired visiallly is your dd? Sorry rushed post time limited but dd in mainstream and doing fabby, in no small part down to ultra wonderful school
