Typically, ESBVIC assigns a Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) to work directly with these eligible students, their teachers and their families. The Instructional Materials Center (IMC) at ESBVIC is a repository of some Braille and Large Print textbooks available to students who are eligible. The IMC is also able to research other repositories and order AEM for schools. For more information about this program, please contact:
