Hi Kerry Jayne
Thank you for your insight and suggestions

Large print instructions (for games/crafts/activities) can help, but also experiment with layout (extra spacing between words and lines, different/bold print) and background colours as these can also help those with visual problems. Black print on a white background can cause a glare effect for instance, maybe try a soft green background.
