Independent Living Older Blind Services
Rehabilitation Teachers provide services to individuals, who are visually impaired or blind, in their homes and teach alternative methods of doing every day activities. Learning these skills increases the individual's ability to live independently and contributes to their confidence in successful employment or activities in the community.
Significant visual impairment, substantial limitation in ability to function independently, a reasonable expectation that Independent Living Older Blind Services will assist the individual, and reside in South Dakota.
Services may include: cane travel skills, communications, writing letters, Braille, telling time, homemaking, counseling, utilizing low vision, leisure activities, and referral to public and private organizations.
