Update for Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments
Per Senate Bill 54, passed by the 82nd Texas Legislature in 2011, candidates interested in this certification must now complete an Educator Preparation Program in this field. Therefore the Visually Impaired and Braille examinations (TExES #182 and #183) are no longer available through the "certification by examination" route. For a list of entities approved to certify Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments, search Approved Programs.
