Blind or Low Vision

According to state law, the term blind or low vision (previously referred to as visual impairment) means a disability that, even with best correction, adversely affects the student’s ability to use vision for learning, which adversely affects the student’s educational performance.

The term;

  • Includes a reduced ability or complete inability to utilize the visual system to acquire information; and
  • May include or be limited to a reduction in field of vision.

Identification and eligibility for special education as a student who is blind or as low vision shall be determined by the case conference committee using the required assessment.  See “Required Assessment Components for Eligibility Areas.

The school corporation educates students who have been identified as being blind or having low vision locally unless the case conference committee determines that services at the Indiana School for the Blind is the appropriate least restrictive environment.
