Visually impaired program

Wisconsin’s only Teacher of the Visually Impaired program begins

CUW launched the sole visually impaired teaching licensure program in the state of Wisconsin this past January. According to state educational data, about four percent of Wisconsin’s school-aged children are visually impaired. Even with the low incidence, Wisconsin lacks qualified teachers and, by federal directive, was in need of a program to provide a pipeline of teacher candidates for the state’s K-12 schools.
