Assessing an institution for students with visual impairments

Assessing an institution for students with visual impairments
According to the University of Washington, individuals are classified as having low vision if they possess either myopic vision ('nearsighted') if they are unable to clearly see objects from a distance, or hyperopic vision ('far sighted') if they are unable to see up close objects clearly.
When counselling a student with a visual impairment about transitioning to college, the goodness of fit must include aspects of orientation and mobility, assistive technology, and the use of residual vision when appropriate. These are additional considerations to the general transitional issues facing all students about to head off to college. These additional considerations can help assure the best fit between the student with a visual impairment and the college of his or her choice.

4 Tips for Teachers Working with Visually Impaired Students Online
A school for the blind and visually impaired in Washington State uses distance learning to accommodate offsite teachers and students.
"Our superintendent felt it was important for blind and visually impaired students to have equal educational opportunities, but it was clear that most online classes weren't going to be accessible to them," said Hahn. "Plus, the classes weren't applicable at all for completely blind children, particularly when it came to using screen readers and being able to access materials."
The school moved from its previous videoconferencing setup to Lync in 2009. It was able to use its existing classroom equipment plus document cameras for visually impaired students.
Blind students use a standard keyboard, Braille display, and Perky Duck, a six-key Braille emulator program that allows them to input questions and answers for their teacher to read and respond to on screen.
