We also advise businesses in how to become ‘colour blind friendly’. Colour blindness is one of the world’s most common genetic condition affecting over 300 million people (c.3m in UK). One in 12 men and 1 in 200 women inherit colour blindness yet it is a poorly understood condition. Colour blindness is in most instances a SEN and a disability yet few teachers are aware of the impact it can have on learning, despite there being at least one colour blind child in every UK classroom.
