The CARE Project (Creating an Albinism Resource for Education) provides parents of school-aged children with albinism, educators and other professionals with resources and information to assist them in formulating a child with albinism’s education document. Education documents include Individual Family Service Plans (IFSPs), Individual Education Plan (IEPs) and / or “504 Plans,” i.e. plans pursuant Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
You can access the CARE Project database to review actual IFSPs, IEPs and / or 504 Plans for children with albinism for help on myriad topics such as grade level goals, assistive technology recommendations, orientation and mobility goals, age objectives and social development objectives. For more information, please contact the CARE Team.
Database of Education Document Examples
Complete education documents are sorted by State or Grade Level and are available for review and / or download at the following links.
By State – Please note that states without numbers listed do not have any examples of complete education documents at this time. However, selected information may be available in the Selected Education Document Information database.
Database of Selected Education Document Information
In addition to the complete education documents, the CARE Team (all NOAH volunteers) create and maintain a database of selected information, i.e. goals, objectives, accommodations, assistive technologies, transition items, etc., extracted from the education documents. This information is presented in spreadsheet formats that are available for viewing and /or download at the following links. Please note that creating the database spreadsheet is a manual process, and thus there may be typos. Please let the CARE Team know if you find them.
*** PLEASE NOTE: All children with albinism have different visual acuities, different functional vision levels and different personal developmental needs. The purpose of the CARE Project is to inform parents and professionals of the “spectrum” of goals, technology and educational methodologies implemented in our schools to assist children with albinism. The materials are intended to provide parents and professionals with a broad overview to better aid them in establishing a child’s individual and unique education plan.
