Guidelines for Working With Students Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired In Virginia Public Schools (Virginia Department of Education Division of Special Education and Student Services)
The purpose of the Guidelines for Working with Students Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired in Virginia Public Schools is to provide information for the provision of services to students who are blind or visually impaired to support their educational goals. These Guidelines provide a resource of suggestions for implementing services; they are not regulatory. They are written for any individual interested in serving the educational needs of students who are blind or visually impaired or deaf-blind. The terms “students” and “children” are used interchangeably.
These Guidelines were revised in December 2017, and will be modified and updated as needed on the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) website at http://www.doe.virginia.gov.
