Low Vision Services for Students

Providing Access to the Visual Environment (Project PAVE) helps Tennessee students with low vision obtain the devices and services they need to succeed in school. Funding for Project PAVE comes from the Tennessee Department of Education and the Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

Low vision is a reduction in eyesight caused by eye conditions or diseases. It is not correctable with medication, glasses, contact lenses or surgery.

Our team provides low vision evaluations, low vision devices, and instruction by Certified Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments, all at no cost to eligible families.
