Producing learning materials in Braille, Moon or large print

WESC Foundation adapts materials for School and College students according to their individual needs. Many of our young people are totally blind and might require books, texts or images to be produced into Braille or Moon (another tactile communication aid).

Students with some sight may require varying degrees of large print and for the text or paper to be a certain colour. Each young person’s preferred choice is known and catered for, along with any grading that the ophthalmologist may request.

Our Braille service also produces material for blind or partially sighted young people in other Devon schools as part of our Outreach Services. More

Supporting students who are learning Braille

Individual lessons are available for students who wish to develop their Braille skills. These are sometimes delivered as part of a learning activity (where a tutor will support the young person in the classroom) or as a stand-alone session.
