The Visually Impaired Program serves students from birth through high school. Students must have a vision impairment supported by a medical diagnosis with accompanying reduced visual acuity. Sedro-Woolley School District has one Teacher of the Visually Impaired, and an Orientation and Mobility Specialist to serve qualifying students.
The vision team designs and provides an 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 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 needs. Planning for post-high school transition is provided. Collaboration with community resources for the visually impaired is utilized to develop a full, well-rounded program for these students.
