Low Incidence

Greenbush provides a continuum of services for learners who are visually and/or hearing impaired from the ages of birth-21. Through partnerships with local school districts and/or special education cooperatives, learners on Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) or Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSPs) receive specialized instruction in a variety of environments.

Resources for these services include:

  • Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist (COMS)
  • Sign Language Interpreters
  • Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ToD)
  • Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments (TSVI)

Districts may contract for low incidence services as consortium members or purchase services on an hourly basis. Children who have a visual and/or hearing impairment may receive specialized services from a Teacher of Students with Visual Impairments (TSVI), a Teacher of the Deaf (ToD), a Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist (COMS), or a sign language interpreter. These services ensure children with such disabilities have access to learn along with their peers to the fullest extent possible.

Resources for these services include:

  • Educational Support – Adaptive curriculum and resources provided within the classroom and school setting
  • Direct Instruction – Direct instruction is provided based on each child’s unique strengths and needs. Braille instruction may be provided to students with profound visual impairments
  • Evaluation and Consultation – Functional educational assessments, parent and staff training
