What we do:

Whether a student is new to blindness; has received training in the past and would like to learn new skills, or if an individual is experiencing vision loss for the first time, our goal is to provide skills training so our students may lead productive and independent lives.

The Comprehensive Day program typically involves Braille, Orientation & Mobility, Access Technology, Independent Living Services as well as Philosophy and Job Readiness. It can take an average of 9 months to complete the program, on a full time, 40 hour week training schedule.

Through our services, our students will gain the confidence, and the skills that allow them to return to the work force, pursue secondary education, or begin the path towards a new career.

Please check out our services page for a list of available classes.

Students who are interested in the program, also can be found eligible to participate in our Adult Residential Program, which provides off site housing throughout the duration of the program
