Habilitation VI UK (formerly MISE) is a group of professionals who work with Children & Young People (C&YP) who have a visual impairment. We have many different titles such as Habilitation Specialists, Rehabilitation Workers, Mobility Officers and O&M Teachers, depending on the context in which we work. See FAQs
We are all Specialists in Mobility & Independence Skills with one aim; to maximise every child’s potential for independence.
Our work focuses on teaching Mobility and Independence skills and this is an essential component of The Specialist Curriculum for C&YP with a visual impairment. Our students are usually in the age range of birth to 19 years old although many Specialists now also work with young adults who have a visual impairment up to age 25, since the publication of the SEND Guidelines 2015 . A considerable proportion of the C&YP that we work with have additional disabilities such as physical and learning disabilities.
