TSBVI student programs that provide K-12 direct instruction, including transition age, in Austin, TX, with limited online opportunities.
What Is The Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC)?
The term expanded core curriculum (ECC) is used to define concepts and skills that often require specialized instruction with students who are blind or visually impaired in order to compensate for decreased opportunities to learn incidentally by observing others.
Short-Term Programs offers free group and individualized instruction for blind and visually impaired students who reside in Texas. Students attend short classes in Austin to gain specific knowledge and skills while remaining enrolled in their local school district. Students enjoy learning and building their independence alongside peers from across the state. Students may also be served online without traveling to Austin.

Transition To Adult Life
At TSBVI, we aim to partner with students, families, local school districts, and other stakeholders to define a good adult life for each student. We provide instruction and experiences that relate to these goals and challenge students to expand their skills, self-awareness, and awareness of the world.
Summer Programs (June 11 – July 7) include enrichment classes for school-aged VI students from across the state. All programs are enrichment and specially designed for blind or visually impaired students.
Application opens January 9 and closes on February 14, 2023.
