The High Desert Educational Service District offers a number of services for children from birth to 21 years who have visual impairments. These services are provided by professional educators who have post graduate training in education for the visually impaired.  Service begins with an assessment to determine a child’s eligibility and need. If a child is found eligible, an individualized educational plan (IEP) is developed that identifies specialized areas of instruction, equipment, or services.
