Services and Programs

EDUCATIONAL SERVICES: CBVI provides educational services from birth through high school years to eligible children and their families. These services are designed to allow students who are visually impaired to participate equally with other students in regular classroom activities.

VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION: The goal of this program is to provide services that will enable people who are blind or visually impaired to develop, acquire or update skills that will help them secure and maintain suitable employment. This may include obtaining jobs in a wide array of competitive career fields like law, education, business, technology, as well as self-employment and other occupations.

INDEPENDENT LIVING SKILLS: This program provides training designed to help people of any age who are blind or visually impaired to adjust to their vision loss and gain the skills of daily living they will need to lead a full and productive life.

EYE HEALTH SERVICES: The goal of this program is to save sight and restore vision whenever it is medically possible. CBVI also conducts and sponsors a variety of educational programs and eye health screenings throughout the state to detect vision problems.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES: services for people who are deaf-blind; business and entrepreneurial training; educational materials for visually impaired children; income tax certification letters; referral to community based programs and services; and low and high technical aids and appliances for people that are blind or visually impaired.
