Statewide Vision Resource Centre

We provide specialist teaching, professional learning, materials and technologies to support Victorian students who are blind or have low vision.

SVRC and COVID-19 - Term 1, 2021

Due to Stage 4 Restrictions in Victoria, SVRC will be closed from Monday the 15th of February until Wednesday the 17th of February. Please email staff with any inquiries during this time.

The Statewide Vision Resource Centre continues to deliver high quality programs, professional learning and resources while observing government COVID safety guidelines.

Materials in alternative formats (braille, e-text, large print and audio) are available for eligible students via post, email or collection from SVRC.

The Educational Assessment Clinic continues to assess student eligibility, either at the Royal Eye and Ear Hospital or via Tele-Health. Functional Vision Assessments are taking place in schools or remotely.

SVRC student programs, including Support Skills, are again being offered onsite at the SVRC; one group for rural and remote students will continue to be held via Zoom this year.

All of our professional learning activities will be offered online in 2021. Please see the Professional Learning page for details of upcoming events.

SVRC has established a Community of Practice for Visiting Teachers (Vision). The group meets on Zoom every fortnight to share ideas and for professional learning.

On behalf of the staff of SVRC, we hope you all stay safe and well!!
