It is imperative for a child to partake in physical activity for a number of reasons. Vision Sports Ireland strives to support parents of children with a vision impairment to ensure they can provide their children with physical activity opportunities that are both accessible and enjoyable.

Vision Sports Ireland are working hard to develop education opportunities and resources for parents/coaches and the education sector to give these sectors the confidence to make the adaptations necessary for their children to partake in physical activity.
