General Course Information and Notes

General Notes

The purpose of this course is to provide students with visual impairments (VI) or dual sensory impairments (DSI) instruction in safe, efficient and independent travel techniques within the home, school, and community environments. The course is designed to promote the achievement of annual goals based on assessed needs within the student’s individual educational plan (IEP).

Placement in this course is determined by an assessment performed by an orientation and mobility instructor. This course is for students with VI or DSI whose IEPs indicate the need for intensive individualized intervention in orientation and mobility skills. A visual impairment or dual sensory impairment affects students’ knowledge of their surroundings, their relationship to their settings, and their ability to travel within the physical and social environments.

A student may repeat this course. The particular course requirements that the student should master each year must be determined by the IEP team through the review of present levels and needs, development of annual goals, and progress monitoring of goal mastery.

This course may be delivered across the continuum of service settings, including general education environments and community settings for the purposes of acquisition, practice, generalization, and maintenance of skills. Activities may be arranged to extend beyond scheduled school hours.
