More About TSBVI
  • Our child has made so much progress in such a short time. He is happy and learning a great deal. TSBVI has been a lifesaver.

  • Without your services and help, my son would not be the social, successful, and independent young adult that he is today.

  • TSBVI has always been supportive with goals for our students. Working together, they help support the conversations between the school and the parent.
