The CESA 6 Blind/Visually Impaired program provides school districts and families with a range of services to address the academic and social needs of children with vision loss. Teachers of the Blind/Visually Impaired provide direct instruction to students and collaboration with school personnel and parents. Areas of focus generally include reading/Braille instruction and expanded core curriculum skills (social interaction skills, independent living skills, recreation and leisure skills, career education, use of assistive technology, visual efficiency skills.)
Collaboration with school personnel and parents is provided regarding the impact of vision loss on overall development, social interactions, and transition needs. Liaison case management services are available for students placed at the Wisconsin School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Janesville.
