Professional Development

TSBVI offers lots of ways to access professional development! We have various conferences, workshops, webinars, and other online learning that provide ACVREP and SBEC credit. We also have various publications and other resources.


This page will house publications and resources from TSBVI Outreach. It will continue to grow as we add new resources!

Assistive Technology

Empowering Learning: Assistive Technology for Students with Visual Impairments.


The VISSIT: Visual Impairment Scale of Service Intensity of Texas is designed to guide teachers of students with visual impairments (TVIs) in determining the type and amount of itinerant TVI services to recommend for students on their caseload.


The O&M VISSIT will help develop recommendations for the amount of time for O&M instructional services (direct and collaborative consultation) per individual student.
