Visual Learning Disabilities means some Designs are challenging for some to See

Most people are aware of Dyslexia or Color Blindness but there are other, less well-known visual impairments. The Museum of Teaching and Learning (MOTAL) is proposing an exhibit that illustrates another group of visual impairments, which include Central Field Loss, Contrast Reduction, Peripheral Field Loss, and combined Peripheral & Central Field Loss.

The exhibit, proposed by MOTAL and Design Professor Claudine Jaenichen, will provide visitors with “tainted” glasses designed to simulate these visual impairments, and experience first-hand an altered comprehension.

Something for designers to think about.
