What does a Teacher of the Visually Impaired do?
My duties include working with students from age 2 to 21 who have a visual impairment which affects their educational success.
These impairments can range from low vision to total blindness and everything in between. As their TVI, I assist them in accessing the curriculum, whether it is through Braille, large print or an alternative media such as audio files.
I also consult and collaborate with regular and special education teachers to help them when teaching a student with a visual impairment.
Because I am a part of their child's life throughout their entire time in school, I also establish strong relationships with the parents. I provide them with resources as well as accompany them to appointments, meetings, etc. if requested.
