General Course Information and Notes

General Notes

The purpose of this course is to enable students with visual impairments to apply concepts, knowledge, and skills in educational settings, home, community, and employment environments, and independent living to achieve annual goals based on assessed needs and the student’s individual educational plan (IEP).

This course is designed for students with visual impairments who need intensive individualized intervention in the unique skills that result from their disability. The presence of a visual impairment affects access to all areas of the curriculum.

A student may earn multiple credits in this course. The particular course requirements that the student should master to earn each credit must be specified on an individual basis and relate to achievement of annual goals on the student’s IEP.

Instructional activities involving practical applications of course requirements may occur in home, school (including separate setting, small group, and individually), community, and employment settings for the purposes of acquisition, practice, generalization, and maintenance of skills. These applications may require that the student use related technology, tools, and equipment. Activities may be arranged to extend beyond scheduled school hours. To address the full range of special skills, students may also be enrolled in an Orientation and Mobility Skills course.

This course is designed to address a range of abilities within the population of students with disabilities. Course requirements may be added or modified based on assessed needs indicated in the student’s IEP.
