I want to take the exam for Teaching the Blind and visually impaired in
order to complete my TVI certification process, could you suggest any
article or book which could be relevant to get sufficient knowledge on the
eye condition or Blindness and visual impairment, preparing IEP for students
with visual impairment, promoting learning development on children with
blindness and visual impairment as well as classroom management for blind
and visually impaired. Any resource, electronic book or Braille copy, or
website, etc. which could help to have depth knowledge in this area.

If you were to go with the models that are sold from the science site given
below, someone can build what is seen and you can feel the large model of it
to answer questions. Show the professor to see if he would find this
