This 21-hour specialization program is open to the graduate student who already holds a valid teaching certificate and seeks to become a teacher of students with visual impairments.

Texas law permits students to begin working as a teacher of students with visual impairments under emergency certification after successful completion of the braille and eye anatomy courses. A field experience course is offered every fall and spring to students who have successfully completed the coursework and are regularly providing services to students who are blind or visually impaired.
