GENERAL INFORMATION

Before making a referral, please remember that all Short-Term Program classes are for students who are on or close to grade level. This includes the weekend independence classes.

Before you submit this proposal, please be certain that the student, family and school are committed to the requested classes.

Referrals must be made by a member of the local school district. This is usually the student’s Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI). Parents cannot refer to these classes except through their local district.

Please ensure that the student's name and date of birth are correct, when coordinating travel for your student it is essential that we have the correct spelling of a student's name and an accurate date of birth.

Access to Academic Classes

ACCESS TO ACADEMICS, ELEMENTARY SERIES, AND INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION CLASSES: We typically teach students in groups of 2 or 3. Students are placed into a group with similar needs, so objectives consider both individual and group considerations. Please list areas of instruction your student might work on at TSBVI (e.g., BrailleNote, addition and subtraction on abacus, JAWS, tactile graphics, College Prep). If uncertain, list possible topics and our teacher will discuss options when calling you about the class:
CITY TRAVEL CLASS: Please include name, email and phone number of O&M who will come to Austin with student for this class.

Additional Information

Note: Please print and keep a copy of this referral.

This will help if your referral is not received due to some technical issue.

The purpose of this referral is to help us evaluate the appropriateness and general direction of services at the referral stage. When we receive a referral, we will:

  1. let you know we got it within 30 minutes, so contact us if you don’t hear back
  2. put your student’s name on the list for all appropriate classes requested
  3. wait until two months before each class to determine who is accepted, and then
  4. contact you to let you know if your student is accepted or on the waitlist.

Before you submit this proposal, please be certain that the student, family and school are committed to the requested classes. Help families understand that all our classes are highly educational and competitive, including the weekends. When students drop out after being accepted, a lot of work is done unnecessarily. Of course we understand that illness would prevent attendance. We greatly appreciate your help with this!
