The Vision Book is a Ministry of Education publication for families and whanau who are learning how to support their blind, deafblind or vision impaired child. This is a critical tool for families facing some difficult challenges.
The resource was designed to have a supportive, reassuring and friendly visual style appropriate for all audiences. The needs of vision-impaired readers were carefully considered throughout the design process.
Suitable photography was commissioned and visual aspects such as colour contrast and scale were carefully considered to increase legibility and ensure the information is accessible to all. Family stories were interwoven throughout each section of the book balancing factual information with personal experiences to bring the information to life.
