Big Print & Adapted Textbooks
We produce big print versions of text books used in Romanian school in order for visually impaired students to be able to read and use the books for learning. Our team transform the normal text books into size 20 font and reformat them to make them suitable for the young people to learn from. We also produce Braille and textured books for blind students to use. These books have textured drawing which the blind person can feel to sense the shapes of structures such as the heart or central nervous system or the Romanian map.
We believe in an equal education for all. Our team undertakes weekly sessions at schools for the deaf in Bucharest to support learning in a creative way. They undertake craft based sessions to compliment the children’s learning and encourage them in teamwork and life skills. The children also learn are encouraged to communicate effectively with each other and with our team to prepare them to be able to integrate fully into society.
Our team also including deaf members of staff also produce craft items that the charity can sell to promote and raise funds for the charity at fairs around the city. These craft items include greetings cards, blankets, cushions, toy dogs and lots of other high quality handmade items!
