SCHOOLFORALL offers you many educative resources to promote and improve the integration of children with visual impairments between 1 and 6 years of age in their classrooms.
With this resources, the teacher of pre-primary schools will be able to create an inclussive classrooms through many tools and adapted applications designed so that teachers can work with these students.
It is worth noting, among the multiple resources that has been developed, two of them are highlight:

This multimedia tool pursue the sensorial-perceptive development of the users and the stimulation of their creativity, while boosting group work and socialization among all students by promoting collaborative work on a level of equality regardless of their barriers.
This application will improve and stimulate the cognitive development and promote visual and hearing stimulation, cause-effect relationship learning through a motivational and stimulating learning tool due to a recurrent call for attention through sensory references. It will encompass different levels of complexity, from passive receiving to the active participation of the student through their interaction with the tablet or Android/Apple device, from which the teacher will be able to customize several features.
