Professional Development

Get professional development credit at our annual conferences! We focus on topics related to working with students with visual impairment.  What you learn will be relevant to you and your work with students.

With the increased move to online and hybrid learning models, AMESVI has also started hosting “Mondays with AMESVI” webinars. Some of our topics have included

  • Working with students with Cortical Visual Impairment
  • Roundtable on teaching Orientation during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Delivering hybrid and remote services
  • … and more!

We encourage our AMESVI members to reach out to the board. We would enjoy hearing your suggestions for conference topics.

AMESVI Training Support Funds

Get financial support from AMESVI for your training event! The AMESVI executive board considers requests for financial co-sponsorship of regional trainings.

We will only consider topics relevant to the education of students with visual impairments and blindness. Trainings must be accessible to any and all members of AMESVI.
