This education resource hub is based on information gathered from the experience of parents of children with nystagmus and is designed purely to raise awareness of the support available
in the English educational system to children and young people with nystagmus as at the date of publication. In it we signpost some of the services, products and technologies currently available. The information contained in this guide is not intended to be comprehensive or exhaustive and no reference shall imply any endorsement of any particular service, or any brand or model of any equipment including low vision equipment. We shall not be held liable and do not accept any liability, obligation or responsibility for their use or for reliance on this guide.
We have taken reasonable care to ensure the accuracy of the information in this guide as at the date of publication, however each nystagmus case varies and this guide cannot cover every eventuality and the services, products and technologies available for children and young people with nystagmus are constantly changing. Parents should ensure that they have access to the most up-to-date information and take advice from their child’s eye specialists, teachers and QTVI (as appropriate) to ensure that the support sought is the most appropriate for that particular child.
Although our education advocate is IPSEA trained, she is not a legal professional and her guidance should not be relied upon as legal advice and is not legally enforceable. Parents should seek specific legal and specialist advice if required by their particular situation.
