Mentor Center - October 2018

NOTE: Our credit card payment portal is temporarily unavailable. You may select another method of payment, or return to register after September 1st.

Mentor Centers provide participants an opportunity to observe experienced TVIs and COMS as they use a variety of strategies and materials with their students on the TSBVI and Austin ISD campuses. Each participant will have the opportunity to observe between 4-6 individual VI professionals a day. Participants also have the option to tour the Criss Cole Rehabilitation Center for adults with visual impairments, located near the TSBVI campus.

Audience: Texas protégés and their mentors, as well as Texas students currently enrolled in the Texas Tech University or Stephen F. Austin State University VI/O&M programs who do not have a mentor.
