Low Vision and Blindness Program

Women Talking To A Boy With Low VisionThe Department of Special Education at Illinois State announced that it will offer a new online master’s program in low vision and blindness. The online program will provide licensed teachers an opportunity to add an endorsement in low vision and blindness while they work to obtain a master’s degree. The program came about because there is a serious shortage in low vision and blindness educators.

“I cannot think of a more rewarding and inspiring career than working as a teacher of students who are blind or visually impaired,” said Dr. Mindy Ely, assistant professor and program coordinator. “We make a difference in the lives of our students while building relationships that endure beyond graduation. I look forward to sharing this opportunity with the graduate students who commit to this new preparation program at Illinois State.”
