SET-BC Vision

Program Objectives

The objective of SETBC: Vision Services is to assist BC school districts in educating students with visual impairments, through the use of assistive technology and to develop assistive technology expertise within school districts.

SET-BC provides the following assistive technology services to school districts:

  • consultation for selection of technology, planning for implementation, and follow-up for school-based teams
  • loan and ongoing technical support of technology
  • training for school-based teams and students
  • provision of resources and information for school-based teams


Referral Process

School districts identify students within SET-BC's mandate who will benefit from the use of assistive technology and request SETBC services, based on an equitable distribution of program resources around the province.

Exit Criteria and Follow Up

SET-BC provides ongoing consultation and implementation and technical support for students who receive technology solutions. On average, this support continues for a five year period: after that time, districts often request new technology solutions and related support for students.

SET-BC carries out an annual follow-up process with school-based teams to determine the impact of technology use on students' educational goals and to collect feedback on our services to districts.
