This research was initiated by a student with visual impairment named X studying at MAN 2 Payakumbuh. X had totally visual impairment since he was born. Unfortunately, during his study, he was never accompanied by a Special Companion Teacher. In addition, none of the teachers teaching in the school had training on special education, so that the teachers did not know the strategies used to teach the students with visual impairment. Nevertheless, X was still able to gain a proud achievement. He won several competitions in Mathematics and went to national level.
