The Visually Impaired program serves students 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 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 acadmeic 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 commuinty resources for the visually impaired are utilized to develop a full, well-rounded program for these students.
