The DPI Visual Impairment Outreach Team
Visual impairment is a low incidence condition, but it can have a high impact on student performance. Material and equipment must be carefully chosen to meet the unique needs of each student with a visual impairment. The Exceptional Children Division of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction has developed a Statewide System of Support for Students with Visual Impairments (Visual Impairment, or VI, Outreach Team) to help local education agencies (LEAs) understand and meet the needs of their students with visual impairments.
