Visual Impairment: Guidelines and Support Documents



Support Documents

Eye Examination Form

All school age children who are determined to be eligible with a Visual Impairment, Including Blindness will need to have an eye examination. This information does not confirm a child’s eligibility status for special education services and supports. It provides information about the learner’s visual diagnosis / diagnoses, clinical functioning, prognosis, and possible medical treatments for the eye condition(s).  An example template has been created for administrative units to use and/or adapt to secure information about the eye examination.
