Vision Program Support Teacher Meetings
WCBVI Outreach Department sponsors professional development through Vision Program Support Teacher meetings. Teachers of the Visually Impaired and Orientation and Mobility Specialists fill this role in their CESAs or districts. These meetings allow time for vision professionals to share trainings from our field, to network, and to learn about DPI initiatives that help us contribute more effectively to IEP discussions and student outcomes. Please send your TVIs and O&Ms to our fall and spring one-day Program Support Teacher meetings. Your vision professionals can sign up for the spring 2016 meetings through our WCBVI website. http://www.wcbvi.k12.wi.us/outreach/programs-and-services/pst-meetings
