It all starts with this!
Comprehensive Low Vision & Blindness Evaluations for Students and Schools
Our Specialized Vision Experts evaluate and provide careful assessment of students, then generate a report making specific recommendations on selection of assistive technology and/or training.
Whether it is a K-12 or college student, our specialized vision experts work to fully understand the needs of the individual and work in collaboration with student’s team in order to identify the best possible solution.
We travel to the school, office, or home to conduct the assessment, and provide a customized solution based on needs and options available.

Individualized Education Plans (IEP)
A comprehensive Assistive Technology Evaluation is a key component to the IEP for any student who has low vision or blindness. We drive to your location and perform this critical service in partnership with the student’s existing IEP team.
We work with the TVI (Teacher of the Visually Impaired) and Low Vision Optometrist to make sure that each evaluation is customized and specific to the special education and related services the student needs.When requested or necessary, we also sit in on IEP (Individual Education Plan) meetings to advocate for visually impaired students.
