Course objectives
The aim of the subject is to introduce students to the intervention procedures, which are suitable for the work with persons with visual impairment. Furthermore, the aim is to present the needs of pupils and students with visual impairments in the educational process by means of simulations and to create a prerequisite for appropriate selection of intervention procedures by future teachers. Another goal is to teach students to work with pupils with visual impairments in their natural environment, to simulate situations in which pupils with a different type of visual impairment and visual impairment teach knowledge and special skills such as self-care, spatial orientation, and independent movement. The simulations will be performed in the SIMU interior and exterior simulator. The basis of this course is the students' learning experience.
Learning outcomes
Student will be able to:
- Understand the different types and degrees of vision impairment and their impact on the normal life
- Based on a diagnosis and vision limitation, make basic recommendations for self-service and mobility
- Know the counseling services and their further specification for the pupil's education period with a visual impairment
- Know the advisory services and their further specification for the adolescence and adulthood period
Syllabus
  • • History of school and social intervention when working with people with visual impairment.
  • • School counseling facilities.
  • • Social rehabilitation of people with visual impairment. The impact of visual impairment on everyday life.
  • • Communicating with people with visual impairment and their families.
  • • Simulation of binocular vision disorders and subsequent training with a pupil with disturbed binocular vision, special pedagogical rehabilitation, selection of compensatory mechanisms at work at school (simulation of disability and subsequent training).
  • • Simulation of impaired color quality and subsequent work with a pupil with reduced color vision, use of edge filters and lens chromatographies, choice of compensatory mechanisms at work at school (simulation of disability and subsequent training).
  • • Simulation of diminished field of view and subsequent training of a student with visual impairments, special pedagogical rehabilitation, choice of compensatory mechanisms at work in the school (simulation of disability and subsequent training).
  • • Simulation of different degrees of sight weakness, practical training of the partially-sighted pupil, selection of compensatory mechanisms for work in the classroom (simulation of disability and subsequent training).
  • • Simulation of practical and absolute blindness, practical training of the blind pupil, choice of compensatory mechanisms at work in the classroom (simulation of disability and subsequent training).
  • • Self-service training for a visually impaired pupil (training in an interior simulator).
  • • Practice the spatial orientation and the individual movement of the pupil in microspace and macrosphere (training on a special simulation path).
