Travelling low vision clinics

Travelling low vision clinics represent a collaboration among the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation, Alberta Education, CNIB and Alberta Health Services. These clinics are designed to provide comprehensive low vision care for children and youth in Alberta. An interdisciplinary approach is used in the clinics, bringing together resources from the fields of health and education and from the community to ensure that each child has the assessment, treatment plan and intervention that he or she requires pertaining to his or her visual impairment. The clinic team consists of an ophthalmologist, an optometrist, teachers for the visually impaired, and an orientation and mobility specialist. The travelling low vision clinics provide equitable access to all children and youth in the province. Parents, teachers, student services coordinators and other members of the school team are encouraged to attend the appointment.
