The paper, titled “Position Paper on Clinical Low Vision Evaluation and Treatment of Students with Visual Impairments for Parents, Educators and Other Professionals,” concludes that students with visual impairments should have access to prescribed optical and/or electronic adaptive devices; instruction in the use of prescribed devices; and recommended habilitation/rehabilitation services throughout their educational program.

Information provided by ongoing clinical low vision evaluations ensures that early intervention programs for young children and individualized educational programs for school-age children are individualized for the visual needs of children with visual impairments and provides them with the best opportunity for successful growth and development.
