CLVP Program Logo

The Children’s Low Vision Project (CLVP) provides students with clinical low vision evaluations, prescribed optical devices, and training in the use of those devices.

WHO
Students, ages 2 – 21, that have been identified as visually impaired according to Missouri’s guidelines for eligibility for special education.  Applicants for the program are also considered based on their ability to benefit from prescribed optical devices.  CLVP serves the state of Missouri with some exceptions in and around Kansas City.

WHEN
Clinics take place throughout Missouri to best accommodate students from a variety of locations throughout the state. Teachers may suggest clinic sites if they have a student population of 5 or more students.  In addition, monthly CLVP low vision clinics take place at the Delta Gamma Center in St. Louis.

HOW
Upon referral, the student’s education team will be asked to provide the student’s most current visual assessments as well as an updated eye report.  Students will then be scheduled for their clinical low vision evaluation at the clinic location closest to the city in which they reside.
