The University of Wisconsin-Platteville offers a graduate program for teachers who wish to become teachers of the visually impaired (TVI).
Marshall Flax, owner of Fork in the Road Vision Rehabilitation Services, is pleased to be an instructor for course 7760: “Anatomy and Physiology of the Eye and Implications for Low Vision” in this graduate program.
This is a two year program that will help to increase the number of highly qualified TVIs in Wisconsin, Iowa and neighboring states.
This course provides the medical and educational implications of visual impairments including the anatomy and physiology of the eye, impact of lighting, and environmental adaptations for students. The ophthalmological, functional and low vision examinations and results will be reviewed in scenarios including reading and interpreting medical reports with the ability to convey to others, and to design appropriate educational and environmental adaptations.
