Internships at TSBVI are highly sought after opportunities for university students in their last year of training to be: Teacher of Students with Visual Impairment (TVI), Orientation and Mobility specialist (O&M), Occupational Therapist (OT), Physical Therapist (PT) and Nurses.
Interested students must secure approval from their university professor before proceeding with the internship application. If a student is accepted for an internship, they will be assigned a mentor teacher and will be trained to assist with the instruction of TSBVI students for a semester.
In some circumstances the principal will grant an internship to a university graduate who is not enrolled in the above mentioned programs, but has significant experience teaching blind and visually impared students.
All interns on campus must complete an application and pass a criminal background check. (TSBVI covers the cost of the background check conducted by the TX Department of Public Safety). If you have specific questions about the process, contact the TSBVI Community Engagement Specialist, Alex Arguello at 512-206-9234.Apply Now
