§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.
