The Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ISBVI) educates and invests in many children that, due to blindness/low vision or blindness/low vision and additional handicapping conditions, other schools cannot or have difficulty serving. Through its outreach initiatives, ISBVI provides services to children and young adults throughout the state who are blind or have low vision who are not enrolled at the School.
