Your child may have been receiving Early Intervention services for his/her first three years of life or may be newly visually impaired or blind; whatever the case you will want to maximize your initial contact with your school district and new team members. An informed and prepared team approach with consistent open communication will help to optimize your child’s overall inclusion in his/her educational setting. Parent advocacy is essential and should advocacy not be your forte’, then seek support from a family member or person that is a strong advocate. Be sure to emphasize your child’s individualized low vision or blindness curriculum accommodations, school/classroom environmental modifications and specialized services and materials to assure inclusion and a meaningful educational experience for your visually impaired or blind child.
