The Carroll Center for the Blind empowers those who are blind and visually impaired to achieve independence and to lead a fulfilling life. The Carroll Center serves ages 3-21 by providing campus based rehabilitation, technology instruction, community orientation and mobility as well as itinerant education and mobility services to children. Check out our website: www.carroll.org .

We seek qualified itinerant TVIs to conduct Functional Vision and Learning Media assessments, and to provide direct instruction, and consultation for students ages 3-21, including those with additional disabilities. Additionally, the TVI will prepare/obtain materials, and work with school-based teams in developing and implementing IEPs. This is a 10 month position with the option to work summers.

M.Ed with current Massachusetts DESE licensure (or eligibility) in Visual Impairments is required though students in need of a supervised practicum experience will be considered based on the recommendation and approval of their university advisor. Strong organization, interpersonal and communication skills are a must, as is a working knowledge of current mainstream, adaptive technologies and resources for teaching both low vision and non-visual learners in general and special education environments.

Those applicants who are new to the field will be supported by seasoned professional staff. All staff work within a large team of experienced and veteran professionals. We offer newly hired TVI’s working 30+ hours/week, a $3000 sign-on bonus, generous benefits package, professional development, working as part of a team and the opportunity to guide our students on their path to independence.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.
