The Program, Teachers of Students who are Blind or Visually Impaired (TVI) prepares teachers in a non-traditional format to become skilled, ethical and respectful teachers of students who are blind or visually impaired.
Graduates of our TVI Program are well prepared to meet the academic needs of their students, in Pre-K-12 educational settings using a wide range of assistive technology, devices for braille literacy instruction and low vision magnification accommodations.
