Defining specialist skills development and best practice support to promote equity, inclusion and personal agency.
Overview of the CFVI
The Curriculum Framework for Children and Young People with Vision Impairment (CFVI) has been developed to support children and young people with vision impairment access an appropriate and equitable education.
The framework presents outcomes within 11 teaching areas:
- Facilitating an Inclusive World
- Sensory Development
- Habilitation: Orientation and Mobility
- Habilitation: Independent Living Skills
- Accessing information
- Health: Social, Emotional, Mental and Physical Wellbeing
- Social, Sports and Leisure
- Preparing for Adulthood.
It provides a shared vocabulary to be used by children and young people, their families and professionals in the UK who work with them. A shared vocabulary supports both better communication and purpose.
Parents and carers
The CFVI can be used to enable parents and carers to understand the pathways of support for their child and the services who may be involved in providing that support within a given nationwide context.
This increased understanding of the areas of focus for a child’s learning, development and wider participation and the common language and shared vocabulary that the CFVI provides, should enable parents to feel more comfortable and confident when meeting professionals to discuss their child’s progress and participation in education and the wider world.
