I just got this request on the facebook group, and wanted to pass it along to parents of children with visual impairments (that is, children whose vision issues are non-correctable).
My name is Chloe and I am a student Social worker doing a research placement looking at children with visual impairments.
I was wondering if anyone would mind answering a few questions. The study is completely confidential and the aim is to improve social services for children with a visual impairment.

Is your child in mainstream education?
