WVC 18-10J-3 §18-10J-3. Individualized education program.
In developing the individualized education program for a child who is blind or visually impaired, the individualized education program team shall provide for the child to receive instruction in braille and the use of braille unless the individualized education program team determines, after an evaluation of the child's reading and writing skills, needs, and appropriate reading and writing media (including an evaluation of the child's future needs for instruction in braille or the use of braille), that the instruction or use is not appropriate for the child. Nothing in this section requires the exclusive use of braille if other special education services are appropriate to the child's educational needs. The provision of other appropriate services shall not preclude braille use or instruction.
