Rehabilitation Education

When a person loses most or all of their vision, it is necessary for them to reorganize their thought patterns and learn new techniques for doing things that they previously did almost automatically. It can be a frightening and disorienting time, but KBA offers many programs through our Rehabilitation Education Program that help to ease this transition, foster self confidence and provide individuals with the Life Skills to maintain and improve their independence. Once these techniques are learned, it generally enables our clients to remain in their own homes or apartments, living a rewarding and productive life.
