We seek to match each candidate’s skills, expertise and location to students who require vision services to access their education. Candidates with deep experience working with students with cortical vision impairment or vision and hearing impairments or vision and an autistic spectrum disorder or vision and multiple disabilities should get in touch with us. Or maybe, your expertise is in using assistive technology, or completing comprehensive evaluations, or serving our youngest in early intervention, or our nearing-adults who need a great secondary transition.

At Future In Sight, we use evidence-based tools and closely collaborate with nearby institutions of higher education in action research to assess, evaluate, serve, and monitor our students. As a result, our students uniquely benefit. Empathy, collaboration, partnership, and appropriately high expectations for learners are our business.

The Opportunity: We are seeking TVIs to provide direct special education services to children and youth ages birth – 21, as well as consultation services to parents and families, teachers, service providers, and paraeducators specific to supporting children with vision loss. Our TVIs are itinerant, and provide in-person and/or live, on-line services. Our TVIs teach a diversity of learners with visual impairment, understand the unique functional and educational needs of learners with visual impairment and act as a liaison with community services.
