Mentor Centers provide participants an opportunity to observe experienced TVIs and COMS as they use a variety of strategies and materials with their students on the TSBVI and Austin ISD campuses.  Each participant will have the opportunity to observe between 4-6 individual VI professionals a day.  Participants also have the option to tour the Criss Cole state Rehabilitation Center for adults with visual impairments, located near the TSBVI campus.
