RNIB learning disability and sight loss top tips guides

The prevalence of sight loss among people with a learning disability is far greater than previously thought. There are about one million adults in the UK with a learning disability. People with a learning disability are 10 times more likely to have serious sight problems than other people and those with severe or profound learning disabilities are most likely to have sight problems.

RNIB has produced two handy top tips guides that provide useful information on how to support someone with a learning disability and sight loss.

Click on the links below to read the top tip guides. You can also download each guide as an accessible PDF and print them off too!
