Any student resident in the Commonwealth with special educational needs in regard to vision, as determined by TEAM decision, ages 3 to 22 (or to the age a high school diploma is attained, i.e. college students are not eligible) can be eligible for services. Districts wishing to access the AIM Library must coordinate all paperwork and requests for materials through a Licensed Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI). The specialized instructional materials available can only be assessed, deemed essential, and administered by a TVI.
Once a local special education team evaluation has been completed, and special needs in regard to vision are written into the student’s I.E.P, a TVI may submit the required documents to register the student with the AIM Library.
