Mission Statement

Meet the Staff

Juliana - AVI Rehabilitation Teacher
My students range in age from 5 years to 90 something. Their lesson plans include everything from learning to tie shoelaces to learning how to use a magnifier properly. Young people are taught how to do a task for the first time, while an older person often needs to relearn tasks that have become difficult due to loss of vision. Most instruction takes place in the students' homes and is tailored to their specific needs.

Sue - Teacher of the Visually Impaired
The purpose of the infant/preschool program is to work with visually impaired children under the age of 5 and provide training to encourage them to develop and use what vision they have. Totally blind children are taught to use their other senses to help them discover, explore and play. Infants and toddlers are usually seen in the home. Children over 3 are provided with instruction in their preschools. Needed information and support is also an important service that is given by the Teacher of the Visually Impaired to parents and teachers.

Arlene - Social Worker
"My most valuable knowledge has come from my clients as they share their feelings about the difficulties and challenges of living with vision loss. It is not an easy world to life in." With the help of agency services, consumers can be helped to regain their sense of worth and the skills needed to live as independently as possible. The goal is to enable blind people to live and be treated as competent and respected individuals.
