According to World Health Organization “globally, it is estimated that at least 2.2 billion people have a vision impairment or blindness, of whom at least 1 billion have a vision impairment that could have been prevented or has yet to be addressed. In geographical Europe, there are estimated to be over 30 million blind and partially sighted persons. An average of 1 in 30 Europeans experience sight loss. Population growth and ageing will increase the risk that more people acquire vision impairment.”
People who are legally blind will benefit, as well as people who are unable to read. So will persons who cannot see all or some colours (achromatopsia – colour blindness). Surprising results from recent studies reveal that the Scripor Alphabet can also help children/adults with Down syndrome, autism (ASD), intellectual disabilities and learning difficulties. Parents, health professionals, teachers, caregivers and others who interact with visually and intellectually disabled people will have enhanced reciprocal experiences.
