Scope Ophthalmic have teamed up with NCBI to support the delivery of our incredible Residential IT Camps for children with sight loss. The camps will take place in the University of Limerick this summer.
Technology is the greatest equaliser for people who are blind or vision impaired, given the importance of IT and its significance in empowering independence and participation in all aspects of life from education to employment.
Scope Ophthalmic generously donated €5,000 to NCBI to cover the cost of the residential IT camps. The camps allow children who are blind or vision impaired, to develop a suite of IT and independent living skills.
Bringing children together from across Ireland, the camps also facilitate peer to peer support, allowing our extraordinary children with sight loss to share their experiences and strategies in overcoming barriers to inclusion.
Early adoption to assistive technology greatly increases independence. Our goal is to provide both blind and vision impaired children from primary and secondary school levels with life enhancing IT skills with both mainstream and assistive technologies.
