Looking for more information about our School, our students and topics regarding visual impairments? The resources included in this section of our website are intended to provide useful information for parents and the community.

Parent Resources

Parents are an important part of a student’s school experience, and we have many opportunities for parents to get involved and show their support.

Community Resources

As part of our commitment to be a resource to the community at large, we offer services and useful information for other educators and service providers of students with visual impairment.


Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) Clinic

Our on-campus CVI Clinic provides full evaluations, consultative support and programming recommendations for enrolled and non-enrolled students.

We hope you find the information here helpful. If you have any further questions regarding the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children, blindness/visual impairments or other relevant issues, please feel free to contact us at 412-621-0100.

Transition Resources

The goal of the WPSBC Transition Committee is to provide a successful transition for our graduating students and their families. The Transition Committee and Educational Teams will provide resources and information to assist families throughout this process. Our team recognizes that each student’s transition is unique, and we will work with families to ensure positive results for post-secondary transition. 
The videos are intended to provide guidance and important information to help during the critical decision-making process. For further questions and information, please reach out to Transition Coordinator, Valerie Farino at 412- 621-0100, ext 1113 or [email protected].
