I just checked the number of listings for pediatric low vision providers on the TSBVI website (Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired). Unfortunately, we have only 74 locations (some have the same clinician in more than one place) in the US and 1 in Canada. I know we are not reaching the numbers of pediatric low vision providers who are seeing children. If you have ideas of how to spread the word, please use what I have below as a starting point and feel free to edit. If you would like to sign my name along with yours, it is fine but my name is not needed. The Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI) website includes the Directory of Pediatric Low Vision Service Providers. Listing contact information in this Directory at tsbvi.edu/lowvisionservices is a public service for parents and teachers as a resource to locate clinical low vision evaluations for their students. Kindly check the listing to see if the clinical low vision specialists who provide evaluations for your students are included. If not, please let the clinicians know of the Directory. On the page, there is a link to a form to submit contact information to the site. students with visual impairments j. Collaborate with the educational team to promote literacy development k.
