Upon receiving a referral, a supervisor will review the packet to ensure it is complete and contains an eye report by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Once complete, the student will be referred to a Teacher of Blind & Visually Impaired Children (TVI) from ESBVIC who will conduct an assessment of functional vision, analyze the students current learning media, review the educational implications of the visual impairment, and present recommendation for services to the IEP, 504 or IFSP team.
If services are needed, the type and amount of services are identified in the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or the 504 Plan. Recommendations for the type and amount of services from ESBVIC for pre-school children are identified in the Individualized Family Services Plan (IFSP).
