Hi Julie,

Some thought on IEP goals:

If your daughter is on target developmentally, then the goals can be 
the same as those for others her age, with the addition of accessible 
materials and presentation of material.

If she has delays, then her goals will probably be 
developmental.  Add to them a section showing materials and tools 
that should be used.  Check out Making It Work: Educating the 
Blind/VI Student in the Regular School--it includes many ideas and 
much information on the subject.

Good luck and keep us posted!
