The Michigan Severity Rating Scales have been in use since the mid-1990's. After being updated over the past 4 years, they have gained acceptance as tools with a high level of reliability in suggesting appropriate service times for students being considered for Orientation & Mobility or Vision Services.

The tools will assist in determining appropriate individualized Teacher Consultant and Orientation & Mobility Specialist service levels. Students who are visually impaired have unique needs which require support in general and special education settings for academic/vocational success. These tools will give you the opportunity to understand the factors that need to be taken into consideration when determining service times for students who are visually impaired and which can assist with staffing decisions by being a first step in gathering data needed for rationalizing or adjusting caseloads.

With increased focus on data driven decision making, new graduation requirements, and the need for cost effective provision of services, these tools can assist staff in matching student needs with disabilityspecific services. The “who, what, how, where, when, why” of the tools will be reviewed.

The tools include:
Vision Services Severity Rating Scale (VSSRS)
Vision Services Severity Rating Scale for students with additional needs (VSSRS+)
Orientation and Mobility Severity Rating Scale (OMSRS)
Orientation and Mobility Severity Rating Scale for students with additional needs (OMSRS+)
