In 1920, Perkins partnered with Harvard to establish the first formal teacher training program for teachers of students with visual impairments.

In the 1950s, Perkins established a teacher training program for Deafblind Education, and continues to collaborate with Boston College in producing teachers of students who are deafblind. More recently Perkins has collaborated with UMass Boston in the development and execution of a pre-service teacher preparation program. Perkins staff have taught courses and students have practicum experiences at Perkins.
