Visual Impairment: Statewide Activities / Education Careers
Regional Low Vision Evaluation Clinics
Five regional clinics are sponsored, through IDEA funds, in the western, southern, metro, and northern areas of the state. These clinics are available to Colorado public school students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) who qualify under the eligibility category of “visual impairment, including blindness.”
Paperwork for the LVE Clinic includes:
- LVEC Welcome Letter
- Purchase Policy for Low Vision Devices
To help students and their parents prepare for a Colorado Low Vision Clinic, the CSDB Outreach Program has created a video entitled An Introduction to a Colorado Low Vision Evaluation Clinic.
