Learning how to do things with limited vision or without sight can be overwhelming -- especially as an adult who has work and family responsibilities. We can give you the training you need to be successful in every area of your life. Classes take place both here at the Center and out in the community, depending on your schedule and needs.

Safe Travel

Don’t let vision loss stop you from going where you want to go. Our certified instructors can teach you how to travel safely and independently. Learn how to use public transportation, get around the airport, navigate grocery stores and restaurants, and more. We’ll teach you how to rely more heavily on your other senses, protect yourself, and feel comfortable getting around on your own.

Taking Care of Yourself and Your Home

Maintaining your home can be a challenge when you have vision loss. Learn specialized tips and techniques for cooking, cleaning, organizing your pantry and closets, and managing money. Let us know what skills you need help with and our certified teachers will work with you at our center-based apartment or in your home to give you the training you want.

Using Technology

From software that reads computer screens to programs that magnify text, we’ll give you the training you need to use computers, scanners and other devices whether you are a novice or an advanced user.

Support Groups

Meet others who are experiencing the challenges of vision loss. Get support, learn coping strategies, and talk openly and honestly about the issues you face. You are not alone.

Career Services

Whether you have a visual impairment or not, finding a job can be a daunting task. We can guide you at every step along the way -- from career counseling and job readiness classes to resume and cover letter writing. Once you’re ready to move forward, we’ll help you find the employment that you want.

Communication Skills

Vision loss doesn’t mean you can’t read or use the computer anymore. We’ll show you other ways to get the information you want and need. From audio options to using the keyboard with shortcuts instead of a mouse, there are many ways to continue to read, write and communicate. If you’d like to learn how to read braille, we can teach you that as well.
