VISTAS Education Partners (VISTAS) is dedicated to providing high-quality instructional, diagnostic, and consultative services that promote the individualized success and independence of blind and visually impaired students, ages 3-21, of all abilities.
We are committed to facilitating personalized instruction that reflects students diverse learning profiles. Recognizing the value of out-of-school time learning, we also strive to provide inclusive and specialized, community-based programs that address critical areas of the Expanded Core Curriculum that can be difficult to adequately address during school hours.
VISTAS was launched in 2016 by Monique Coleman, after more than 15 years of working as a Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) with children from early intervention through high school. Monique started VISTAS in order to reach more students in need of high quality, 21st century instructional support and effective educational programming.
VISTAS was also created to fill a critical need for both inclusive and specialized, community-based programs that enrich the lives of individuals with vision impairments and forges relationships across ability differences. Since its inception, VISTAS has served students in more than a dozen New Jersey school districts and has provided community-based enrichment activities in collaboration with local community organizations.
