Now available: Learning Media Profile version 3

Dear SPEVI members, friends and colleagues,

Many thanks to everyone who has provided feedback on the Learning Media Profile that has been jointly developed by Tricia d’Apice, Michelle Knight and myself. I am pleased to let you know that Version 2 of the Learning Media Profile is now on the SPEVI website, together with a file containing Supplementary Material that will assist you in completing Profiles for your students with vision impairment. You can find the relevant files under the header Educational Documents on this webpage (use Ctrl+F to search for 'Profile') . Feedback to date has included the usefulness of the Learning Media Profile for primary, secondary and higher education students, and the need for modifications to the Profile for children in preschool and early childhood settings who are not yet literate.

Tricia, Michelle and I welcome your feedback on Version 2 – our email contact details are included on the first page of the Supplementary Material file.
Cheers, Frances Gentle
