Education Services for Blind and Visually Impaired Children (ESBVIC)

Maine students with disabilities due to blindness or visual impairment and who are eligible, are likely being provided services from Education Services for Blind and Visually Impaired Children (ESBVIC External link), a service of Catholic Charities of Maine. Typically, ESBVIC assigns a Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) to work directly with these eligible students, their teachers and their families. The Instructional Materials Center (IMC) at ESBVIC is a repository of some Braille and Large Print textbooks available to students who are eligible. The IMC is also able to research other repositories and order AEM for schools. For more information about this program, please contact:
