NMSBVI Albuquerque offers statewide outreach and preschool/kindergarten education services.

Preschool/kindergarten is part of NMSBVI’s continuum of services offered to children throughout each stage of growth and development. The Preschool and Kindergarten Program serves children who are blind or visually impaired between the ages of 3 and 6 from Albuquerque and the surrounding areas. Students are required to have a diagnosed vision impairment that adversely impacts their capacity to learn in a more traditional classroom. All students are placed in the program by IEP committee decision held by the student’s resident public school system.

The academic program for Preschool and Kindergarten consists of literacy (print and Braille), math, concept development, socialization and all aspects of the expanded core curriculum for blindness. Students are encouraged to explore and to become familiar with their immediate environment; then expand outward to travel successfully into new and unfamiliar areas. Guided exploration and self-discovery are used to support learning at every level. All children are placed in the preschool programs by IEP team decision because they require daily support from a teacher of the visually impaired

The Preschool and Kindergarten Program offers additional services to students who qualify. These services include:
Classroom instruction from Teachers of the Visually Impaired
Orientation and Mobility instruction
Speech-Language Therapy
Physical Therapy
Occupation Therapy
Nursing
Social Work
Audiology
Transportation

NMSBVI’s residential services are available to New Mexico students who have an identified visual impairment that has been determined, through assessment, to impact their learning. Families and school districts should consider a placement when the student needs intensive instruction in skills related to visual impairment (ex: Braille, life skills, technology). In addition, a placement on the campus may be appropriate when a school district has been unsuccessful in hiring or replacing its teacher of the visually impaired; when a student is nearing the completion of their high school years and is not ready for their next life step; when a student is ready to move to their district’s middle or high school but the student’s team thinks the student could benefit from an ‘extra’ year to prepare for middle/high school. Often, districts contact NMSBVI when a high school student needs credit recovery.

(*Note: For more information about the residential campus, contact Julie Johnson at 575-439-4432 and for the summer, contact Ron Later at 575-439-4478).
