Visual Impairments can be defined from a legal, educational, rehabilitative or functional perspective. “Children with visual impairments” includes a broad range of children who require early intervention or special education services because of the severity of their visual limitations. Children with low vision or limited vision can usually be educated to varying degrees using the visual sense. The term “blind” is applied when children must be educated through tactile and sensory channels other than vision.
