Trauma of Transition to Secondary School for Visually Impaired Youngsters

The transition from Primary to Secondary Education can be traumatic for young people who have a visual impairment. There are loads more adults to cope with, a variety of lessons in all kinds of rooms, navigation throughout a large building, and a much larger volume of peers to deal with. Ignorance is the  greatest enemy. But the 'postcode lottery' of access arrangements and the wide range of inclusive practices, not to mention the major cutbacks in funding make it often a matter of chance as to whether YP will get the help and support they are entitled to. This clip from YouTube demonstrates this point clearly.
