    The UALR online master's program in Rehabilitation Teaching encompasses the use of varied evaluation and teaching techniques that help individuals with impaired vision develop and enhance their skills in personal and home management, and communication. The rehabilitation teaching program meets individual learners needs through the establishment of appropriate goals and sequential skills instruction. The program also provides pre-service and in-service quality education through a web based online format, utilizing video streaming as a major avenue to deliver information.
    Coursework leading towards Academy Certification for Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals (ACVREP) for RT and O & M Certification eligibility may be pursued through the UALR Rehabilitation teaching program. Applicants lacking specific competencies for ACVREP Certification eligibility may enroll in the respective UALR program courses to fulfill requirements needed for certification eligibility.

    In order to complete the online program courses, you will need a computer system with the following requirements:

    Minimum Computer System: PC Windows Based Computer with a Pentium 400 MHz or greater with 64 MB of RAM (128MB of RAM if using Microsoft Office XP) with multimedia capabilities including speakers and sound card, and a DSL, Cable, or T1 Internet connection. Accessing course materials with a 56k modem and dial-up Internet service may be possible in some geographic areas, but a faster connection is strongly recommended.

    Note: If using adaptive equipment involving Braille and speech output, more memory is needed. A minimum of 128 MB of RAM are commonly required to access the online course delivery system used for some of the required RT and O & M program courses. Screen reader programs such as JAWS will require the newest versions, 3.5, 3.7, 4.0, or 5.0 in order to access the program course delivery software.
    The campus library is accessible online - offering a complete line of services for the distance learning student. The UALR library has a rehabilitation resource site developed specifically for this program. Specific handout materials are posted at the class web site. Internet resources and inter-library loans are used to provide free or low-cost access to research materials. Textbooks can be purchased online or ordered from a distance through the UALR campus bookstore. Students enrolled in UALR's Distance Education Classes or Off-Campus Programs, and those who access Ottenheimer Library's services remotely from home or at work have access to a variety of online resources and library services. Library access and use is considered essential to success at UALR and is encouraged from all locations. Toll-free assistance is available by calling 1-800-340-9367. The bookstore can be reached 501-569-3245.
    The Rehabilitation Teaching program currently has a federal Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) grant. The grant provides some financial assistance to a limited number of qualified students enrolled in one of these degree programs. The current grant will end the summer of 2005. Students receiving grant funding enter into a contractual agreement requiring a graduate to work for a state, federal or non-profit private rehabilitation agency for two years per every year of scholarship grant funds received (the requirement is the same, regardless of student status [full or part-time] per each year of funding received). Part-time student pay-back time is pro-rated on full-time equivalent.

    Other sources of financial support may be available. See UALR Rehabilitation Teaching Website for additional financial support information. UALR's Office of Admissions and Financial Aid will help you to contact them at (501) 569-3035 or toll-free at (800) 482-8892.
