Hello my Federation family, I feel this individual has been given
information that is not correct, and I'd like to help him [her?] as much as
possible. The following was posted on the CABS listserv today. I told him
that it is not the norm for blind/visually impaired students to be referred
to a private school merely on the basis of their "disability" and to be told
that the local school district cannot accommodate a blind student. We need
to help correct this problem as soon as possible. Is there anyone in this
individuals local area (San Jose) or anyone else around the state who has
more knowledge in these sorts of matters who can provide information and/or
resources to ensure that his son enjoys a smooth transition from Maryland to

Subject: [Cabs-talk] Information Needed : San Jose Vision Services

Our son Raghav Choudhary is 7th grade student who gets vision services in
regular school in Howard county, Maryland. He has some vision in his one eye
and he prefers to read large print(40 size fonts). I got a job in San Jose
area and looking for  house in Evergreen School District in south San Jose.
I talked to special education department in Evergreen school district and
learned that they don't support students with special needs in regular
classroom. They place students  in private school.
Does anybody has any experience with private schools for special needs
student in this area ?

We will really appreciate if we get the student/parents perspective on
special education services available in south San Jose area. This will help
us make right decision.
Thanks in advance.
