Blind and Visually

The Blind and Visually Impaired

Learners who are blind or visually impaired have unique educational needs. The goal is to help these students to reach their academic potential within the regular education setting given accommodations, tools, and instruction to allow access to visual information. The vision program facilitates student literacy, organizational and functional skills, and safe independent travel in all educational settings. The Teacher of the Visually Impaired works as a team member with students, families, and teachers to implement individual education plans for each student's educational process from birth to age 21 or high school graduation.
