Community Based Support (3-22)
Itinerant Services for students in public schools (ages 3-22)
Perkins School for the Blind provides community-based support for students in the public schools ages 3-22 by partnering with New England school systems, early intervention agencies, families and educators to provide optimal services to children with visual impairments or deafblindness with or without additional disabilities.
How we can help:
- Direct Services: We provide developmental and educational services in schools, homes and community-based settings to address the unique learning needs of students who are visually impaired.
- Consultation: We work with educators, therapists, families and administrators to support agencies, schools and families.
- Training & Professional Development: We conduct workshops, seminars and other courses that address the developmental and educational needs of children of all ages.
- Evaluations and Assessments for Students: We provide diagnostic evaluations for children of all ages, even if they do not attend Perkins.
- Evaluations for Other Programs: We can lend our expertise in developing curriculum and activates for the visually impaired to other programs and schools.
