One of the requirements of a teacher of students with visual impairments (TVI) working in an itinerant service delivery model is to recommend the type and amount of TVI service for each student. This decision is often made in a variety of ways, but this recommendation is critical in ensuring student success. There are two types of service provided to students with visual impairments:

  • Direct instruction from the TVI, and
  • Support for others on the educational team, including other special education and general education teachers, paraeducators, family members, related service providers, other school personnel, and community partners (Pogrund, Darst, & Munro, 2015).

Evaluation, instruction, and collaboration in the ECC are the primary roles for TVIs. Therefore, the VISSIT was developed around the nine areas of the ECC. Evaluation for students with visual impairments includes all relevant evaluations in the nine areas of the ECC and current versions of the student's functional vision evaluation and learning media assessment (Pogrund, Darst, & Munro, 2015). 

Based on evaluation results, a TVI will use the VISSIT to determine the recommended amount and frequency of TVI services.

Optical Devices for Individuals with Low Vision

Students with low vision benefit greatly from the use of a wide range of optical devices that include monoculars, telescopes, bioptics, hand-held magnifiers, prisms and so forth.  A good low vision exam done by a low vision specialist is done to determine exactly how the individual can use his or her vision and what devices may work best for the individual.
