Let me tell you about _________________________: Provide a general, informal description of the student.  What makes him or her sparkle, what does she or he like, what challenges him or her?  Make it personable, not just reciting facts.

For example:

Juan is 10 years old and has low vision related to his albinism.  He loves baseball.  He is on the beep ball team here in town.  He can recite scores and stats for his favorite team, the Texas Rangers, all day.  He is sometimes socially isolated and we are working on ways to get him more confident and be more included socially.

His/her vision is:  Provide not only the name of the visual condition, but also a 2 – 3 sentence description of what this means.

For example:

Juan has albinism.  Because of this he is sensitive to light and glare from the windows.  He often wears a cap and sunglasses.  Juan needs magnification to read regular print and see people and objects in the distance, including the board in his classroom.

We are working on: Describe what you are working on today and how it fits into the larger picture. 

For example:

Juan is learning to use a monocular to see the board and objects in the distance.  Today we will be working on spotting and tracking objects. These activities are part of his goal to <insert goal>. In the spring we plan to go to a high school ball game so he can use his monocular to follow the game.
