Yandelora School - Cortical Vision Impairment

Guest speaker at our Club on 3rd June was Ana Levar, a Vision Support Teacher for the Department of Education. Ana works at Yandelora School to support the teachers to meet the needs of students with significant vision impairment and intellectual disability. At Yandelora School Ana’s role is to build the capacity of staff to meet students’ needs in all of their aspects of school life. 

Ana has a special interest in a particular type of vision impairment called CVI, or Cortical Vision Impairment. This is a complex and poorly understood form of vision impairment, however is also the most common cause of vision impairment. 

Camden Rotary Club supported, through a Rotary District Grant and Club donations, the purchase of some amazing and unique teaching aids for students with CVI at Yandelora which Ana showed to Club members. Our Club members are pleased and proud to be able to make a difference in the lives and education of young people at Yandelora School.
