Duke’s Pediatric Low Vision Program helps children with low or poor vision function maximally in their education environment.
Low vision can be the result of childhood conditions such as:
During an evaluation, a low vision specialist determines what type of assistive devices and strategies would best serve the visually impaired child in the school and at home, and works with the family and the school to advise them how best to implement the recommendations.
Health care providers, including a social worker, work with the Governor Morehead School as well as special teachers for the vision impaired (TVIs) in public schools to help children with low vision.
