South Dakota Rehabilitation Center for the Blind


If you have a visual impairment, the South Dakota Rehabilitation Center for the Blind (SDRC) may be able to help. Staff members are trained to teach skills that help people lead a full productive life--regardless of how much one does or does not see. Upon completion of training, individuals usually return to their community and use these new skills in their home, school or job.


Eligibility Requirements:

Individuals who have a vision loss that is creating difficulty for them at home, school, or work are eligible for services at SDRC. The majority of individuals served are, referred by a rehabilitation counselor or rehabilitation teacher located at any of the SBVI Area Offices.


Services Available:

For more details on the programs and services available at SDRC, you can download and read the SDRC Handbook (PDF).
