Requirements for Teachers of the Visually Impaired
To become a teacher for visually impaired students, you must first complete a bachelor’s in education in general education or special education. A TVI is considered an add-on or additional certification to your teacher’s license and requires additional graduate-level coursework. Some of the things you will learn when seeking this certification are:
- Foundations in education for students with visual impairments
- Reading and writing Braille
- Anatomy and physiology of the eye
- Educational implications of visual impairments
- Instructional strategies
- Basic orientation and mobility skills
Most programs require an internship where you will work hands-on with visually impaired students under the supervision of a licensed professional.
Certification for teachers of the visually impaired jobs varies from state to state. Some offer reciprocity for licenses from other states, but others do not. Having certification and maintaining good records go a long way to making sure you can get a license in the state where you want to work.
