Teacher of the visually impaired (TVI)

A Teacher of the Visually Impaired, or a TVI, is an educator who specializes in assessing the needs of a student who has low or no vision. TVIs work to develop a plan to help students thrive in the classroom and then walk alongside the student, their teacher, and their parent or guardian to ensure the plan is implemented and followed. 

The average high school graduation rate of students who are blind or have low vision is only 63%. Without intervention, students who have limited vision quickly fall behind. TVIs are essential for supporting blind and low-vision students, helping them find success.
