Vision Services


Nebraska Center of Education of Children who are Blind or Visually Impaired: website


Welcome to the Vision Services

The ESU7 Vision Team provides resources, services, and support in preparing children/youth who have a visual impairment for success in life through collaboration with schools, families, and community agencies.

Vision services are available for students experiencing vision problems. Certified vision personnel provide evaluation, consultation, and intervention for these children. This assistance may include the use of adaptive equipment, assistive technology, instruction in Braille, orientation and mobility, and other skills for accessing the general curriculum, and acquire Adapted Core Curriculum skills specific to individuals with vision impairments.
