Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired is well known for its wealth of information about the education of children with visual impairments. The directory of low vision service providers adds an additional valuable resource for professionals and parents who are seeking the best in medical and educational services for children with low vision. The directory may be accessed by going to the left side of the home page and finding the section, “I’m looking for…”, then click Low Vision Service Provider Directory.
