Visual Impairments

DPI Visual Impairment Resource
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 to help local education agencies (LEAs) understand and meet the needs of their students with visual impairments.
