Intended Audience: ECSE Teachers and Special Education Directors at districts serving preschool children who are blind, visually impaired, or deaf-blind and enrolled in ECSE

Date: May 11, 2007

Districts serving preschool children who are blind, visually impaired, or deaf-blind and enrolled in Early Childhood Special Education (ESCE) may be interested in learning more about MoSPIN (Missouri Statewide Parent Involvement Network). MoSPIN services are also available for families of children birth through two.

MoSPIN Parent Advisors visit the student's home on a regular basis to instruct parents on a variety of issues that are unique to children with visual impairments. This instruction is based on the nationally recognized INSITE curriculum and may include topics such as the child's specific visual impairment and the resulting impact on communication, motor, or other areas of development. These services are provided at no cost to districts or families.
