Summary

This brief paper summarizes data from a survey of state education agencies (SEAs) on changes related to Braille instruction since the passage of the 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Major findings from analyses of the 44 responding agencies include the following: (1) 25 SEAs have counts of the number of students served under IDEA receiving Braille instruction, although these counts are taken in different ways and may or may not include students at the state school for the blind; (2) 11 of the responding SEAs have policies, procedures, or guidelines for evaluating a student's need for Braille instruction; (3) in 26 of the responding states, valid certification in the area of visual impairment qualifies a teacher to provide instruction in Braille, but only 14 states require specific Braille competency; and (4) 29 responding states have a count of the number of personnel who are certified to teach Braille. Overall conclusions suggest that data on the number of students with Braille instructional needs and personnel to address these needs are not readily accessible in many SEAs. (DB)
