Visually Impaired

The Visually Impaired program serves students preschool through high school. Students must have a vision impairment supported by a medical diagnosis with accompanying reduced visual acuity. Edmonds School District has two Teachers of the Visually Impaired, an Orientation and Mobility Specialist, and four certified Braillists to serve qualifying students.

A team of skilled professionals design and provide the individualized program for the student. Parents, a general education teacher, a vision teacher, and other relevant specialists are part of the educational team. Services focus on instruction in compensatory skills to accommodate the visual impairment. These may include: sensory efficiency, Braille, adapted academic instruction, assistive technology, low vision aids, or orientation and mobility. Large print, auditory, and Braille materials are available to students per their individual need. Planning for post high school transition is provided. Collaboration with community resources for the visually impaired are utilized to develop a full, well-rounded program for these students.
