Reader’s Digest Partners for Sight Foundation (RDPFS) awarded VISIONS/Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired a grant for their Hands-On Technology Training for Vision Rehabilitation Professionals program designed to train teachers of the visually impaired (TVIs) on the full range of technology, software, applications and other important resources that benefit students with vision loss.
VISIONS also facilitates an Internet group for the TVIs, who have attended VISIONS training sessions at their Vocational Rehabilitation Center in Rockland County, to communicate with one another and with VISIONS technology trainers after the training for follow up questions and peer support.
Through our partnership, VISIONS is expanding its reach to TVIs in schools outside of New York City, who are often isolated from their peers.
