The course is based on knowledge and practical experience related to visual/hearing impairment. As an overview of some of the eye conditions participants will be using simulation glasses, as well as having practical experience of sighted guide. Participants will also have practical opportunities to explore hearing aids and frequency modulators (radio aids).
