School Age Children (3 - 20 Years Old)

Cleveland Sight Center strives to support school districts in providing the best services to students and families to enhance their education, developmental growth and independence.

Collaborating with Schools

School districts are required to complete a Multi-Factored Evaluation for children who are blind or have low vision every 3 years. This evaluation establishes or re-establishes a child’s eligibility for a specialized education.

School teams including parents prepare an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) annually that specifies goals and services for each student. School districts may contract with CSC to provide Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) and/or Orientation & Mobility services that address the Individualized Education Plan.

Case Management

Each client is assigned a Case Manager who will provide information, resources and support to families as they navigate the school and medical environments. If requested, Case Managers can attend school meetings with the parents to support the needs of a child with a vision impairment and their teachers.
