My name is Gwyn, I am a qualified teacher of visual impairments with 20 years experience. I run an educational consultancy and training service for professionals working with children with visual impairments called Positive Eye, based here in the UK. Positive Eye delivers courses both here and in Europe. In addition Positive Eye has its own product range, which I have written and developed and publish in house to meet the bespoke requirements of the audience I work with. It has become a popular range amongst professionals in the UK.
