Information for TCVI's
This information is intended for Teacher Counselors of Visually Impaired Students in the school system who are referring eligible or potentially eligible students for Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS). Please send your information to your local BSBP office.
Post Secondary Readiness Program
Before an Individual Plan for Employment is developed that includes the use of (Michigan) Bureau of Services for Blind Persons resources for college, the individual must demonstrate his or her ability to function in the academic environment. The Post Secondary Readiness Program has been developed to measure a student's preparedness for college, specifically in the areas of communication skills, note taking, technology skills, travel, and activities of daily living.
Scholarships and Grants for Students who are Blind or Visually Impaired
A compiled list of scholarship and grant opportunities from around the country. Please check the specific application deadline for each one.
College Prep Program
Students who are blind or visually impaired have an opportunity for a college experience prior to becoming full-time students. The program is designed to provide BSBP consumers with training and skills needed to become successful full-time college students. Students will take online academic classes from WMU, and BSBP staff will provide Pre-ETS instruction toward college readiness.
