Mission Statement

The aim of HabilitationVIUK is to maximise the mobility and independence skills of children and young people with visual impairments.

This may be achieved through individual training of students with visual impairments by Registered Qualified Habilitation Specialists, or by supporting parents and other involved professionals to maximise mobility and independence. All training offered by Registered Qualified Habilitation Specialists (RQHS) will meet the National Standards for Habilitation Training. As part of registration RQHS are required to undertake regular relevant cpd, which keeps them apprised of legislation changes, good practice and developments in the field.
