Welcome to the Vision and Orientation & Mobility Program

Visually impaired students receive services from itinerant teachers for the visually impaired as well as orientation and mobility specialists, where appropriate, within their home schools. Services are provided to students, parents, and staff members through consultation and direct instruction to address vision needs as identified on the students’ IEPs. Services are provided on a 1:1 basis and occur within the students’ schools and their home communities.

Students receiving services include those who are totally blind and those whose vision, even with correction, adversely affects their educational performance. These students often require instruction in concept development, daily living skills, the use of adapted materials/equipment (such as Braille, large print books, books on tape, and various forms of assistive technology), organization, learning through an alternate sense, and travel.
