Statewide Vision Resource Centre
SVRC and COVID 19 - Term 2, 2020
SVRC has continued to deliver high quality programs, professional learning and resources while observing social isolation government guidelines.
All SVRC staff continue to work from home delivering services online or via phone, email or post. With only a skeleton staff at SVRC on some days, visitors are advised to email before visiting.
The SVRC Transcription team continues to produce materials in alternative format, with only a small number of staff coming to the centre for hard copy production, binding and posting.
The Educational Assessment Clinic continues to assess student eligibility via Tele-Health with doctors, education officers, psychologist and families all remaining at home. Functional Vision Assessments have taken place remotely with students either at home or at school.
All SVRC student programs have been continuing online or via post. The Support Skills Program has been very successfully conducted via Zoom, with students and staff working from home. Students involved in the Dot Power Program have received braille books and activities, with activity suggestions, posted to their homes.
We expect some of these provisions to change in Term 3 as further restrictions on school activities are lifted.
Please contact SVRC via email, in case there is no-one onsite to answer the telephone.
