Welcome to Lea Hyvärinen's Homepage

This homepage is created to share my teaching materials with other teachers in low vision, in vision screening and in occupational health. The slide library grows rather slowly because I edit it in my scanty spare time. In some materials there are also overheads, instructions how to simulate different types of vision loss etc.

Since this information may also interest families of children with visual impairment or adult persons with vision problems, the texts are in as plain English as possible and there is a glossary of the most common terms used in low vision services.

When you copy any of the materials for a book, commercially distributed slides, videos or cd-rom, you need a written permission which I will be glad to give when you send a letter via mail. Copying of slides is free for your own teaching.

Those of you who want to know more about me can take a look at my CV.

In the SLIDE LIBRARY you can study and copy slides.
