Training services for those with blindness, low vision or other challenges

Services are adapted appropriately for each client group including the end-user as well as their responsible leaders, for example, parents, educators, caregivers, advocates and protectors. These services focus on the needs of young people in their high school or college years. We are also happy to serve veterans and other client groups upon request.

 

Individuals with challenges routinely have adaptive skills that others do not. We incorporate those strengths and apply them to subjects that; develop employment skills, encourage achievement, improve daily living and enhance personal safety/security. We promote a positive and problem-solving mindset that embraces ability and overcoming obstacles in order to live life fully. Our goal is to provide effective tools that can help make lives better.
