Travelling Low Vision Clinic

The Travelling Low Vision Clinic (TLVC) is designed to provide educational programming considerations for children and students with low vision in Alberta.  The clinic uses an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together resources from health, education and the community to ensure that each child has the assessment, treatment plan, and intervention that they require pertaining to their visual impairment.  The clinic team is comprised of an ophthalmologist, an optometrist, teachers for the visually impaired, and an orientation and mobility specialist.  The Travelling Low Vision Clinic is designed to provide equitable access to all children and youth in the province, as clinics will take place in various centres across Alberta.  Parents, teachers, student services coordinators, and other members of the school team are encouraged to attend the appointment.

Objectives of the TLVC:
  • Provide low vision evaluation (including an ophthalmological assessment), device prescription, and classroom adaptation recommendations.
  • Provide orientation and mobility evaluation and recommendations.
  • Provide a lending library of low vision devices and related visual aids.
  • Provide recommendations for assistive technology.
  • Provide teaching strategies and resources to teachers, learning teams, vision consultants and parents.
