When a child who is totally blind or severely visually impaired is enrolled in your school district it may be the first-time your district is educating a student whose visual impairment limits his or her mobility and safety.
Or, it may be many years since you have had child with a severe visual impairment in your schools. Visual Impairment Including Blindness is, after all, a low incidence disability category.
Children whose blindness or visual impairment limits their mobility and safety can receive IEP related services in orientation and mobility. These services prepare children with visual impairments to build the skills they need to participate safely and with age-appropriate independence in their educational programs.
This Invision Quick-Course is designed specifically for school administrators, school principals and administrative staff to explain the mobility and safety needs of children who are blind and visually impaired, and describe how these needs are addressed in schools.
A handout administrators can share with teachers and school staff is included.
One (1) ACVREP continuing education credit hour will be awarded for O&M specialists who complete this quick course, the course quiz, and the ACVREP required course evaluation and attestation.
