Low Vision Services
Vision services teach specific skills to students with visual impairments to help them successfully access curriculum and materials in the school environment. These services teach remedial and/or adaptive strategies to use his/her vision more efficiently. These strategies may include using optical devices recommended by a doctor, such as glasses or using a magnifier to see things close up (print/pictures in a book or on the bulletin board). If appropriate, braille may be introduced, as well as pre-literacy skills using braille. Students receiving vision services undergo an assessment to identify areas of need. The vision specialist then develops goals and decides level/type of services needed.
