Program Description

In response to the state-wide shortage of teachers trained to work with visually impaired students, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) offers a certification for Teachers of the Visually Impaired (TVI). This program is specifically designed to prepare Alabama scholars for a career of teaching students who are blind or visually impaired. In addition, candidates in other states, may enroll in the TVI program to earn certification in Alabama and then work with their home state to transfer that certification.
