School Districts and Educators

Cleveland Sight Center partners with Northeast Ohio school districts to provide educational assessments and services from Teachers of the Visually Impaired and Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialists. CSC is also an OOD Provider for referrals for Pre-Employment Transitional Services and Summer Youth Work Experience Program. 

Cleveland Sight Center (CSC) is available to provide guidance and resources to Northeast Ohio school districts on how to best identify and meet the needs of their students with a diagnosed or suspected visual impairment.  CSC encourages district staff to refer the parent or guardian of these students to CSC to connect with a children and young adult case manager.

We recently asked two of our school-aged clients what advice they would give to teachers who have a blind or visually impaired student in their classroom. Check out this video to see what they said about some "dos" and "don'ts" teachers should keep in mind.

The Annual Teacher Workshop, "See What's Possible" will be held at Cleveland Sight Center on August 10, 2023 from 9 am - 3 pm and is designed for professionals (general education, intervention specialists, administrators, therapists, and support staff) who work with children with low vision, cortical visual impairment and or blindness.

We strive to provide presentations that equip attendees with the knowledge, resources, and strategies to help meet your students’ needs. Areas of the expanded core curriculum will be introduced, along with information about recreational, pre-employment and transitional services for students with low vision and blindness.
