Teacher of Students with Visual Impairments: Mandatory Class for CVI

The class about CVI offered by University of Massachusetts Boston has been an elective for teachers in training learning to be Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments. I am so pleased and proud that the Vision Studies Program at UMASS has made this an MANDATORY part of their curriculum for TVI training. I believe this is the first in the country! Well done UMASS! It is a great step forward for our growing population of student identified with CVI. These new TVIs will graduate and be familiar with the unique assessment, environmental adaptations, specific interventions and program planning for children with CVI!



  1. I think this is fantastic!!! Since CVI is a brain disorder and not an eye disorder, it is very unique and should be taught separate. I hope more colleges follow in their ”IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION” footsteps.
