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.

Learning Objectives:

• Keep a record of materials and strategies observed.
• Apply strategies and materials to their own students.
• Connect theory learned in coursework to actual situations in the field.

Audience: Protégés matched with a TVI and/or COMS mentor through the TSBVI Mentor Program and 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.
