Support for children who are blind or have low vision

Children or students who are blind or have low vision can get support from the Blind and Low Vision Education Network of New Zealand (BLENNZ).


BLENNZ employs specialist teachers to support children and students at their local early childhood education centres or schools.

BLENNZ is a national network with resource centres across the country.

Resource Teachers: Vision

BLENNZ employs specialist teachers called Resource Teachers: Vision (RTVs).

RTVs assess a child or student’s needs in either a classroom, in a one-to-one setting or at home. They team up with other staff and specialists to provide the most appropriate support.

RTVs work with teachers and families to set achievement goals and create learning plans for children and students who are blind or have low vision.
