What types of training do veterans receive at Blind Rehabilitation Centers?

Many excellent programs are provided for veterans with low vision or those who are legally blind. For instance, veterans may participate in sensory training classes that teach them how to lean on their remaining senses to acclimate to their environment. Living skills classes help veterans  adjust to living independently as they regain the ability to do activities of daily living (ADL). Training in manual skills affords veterans time to work on safe and efficient habits and improve their ability to organize.

Computer access training is yet another program afforded to veterans. This program makes recommendations on the type of special computer equipment visually impaired or blind veterans might need. In addition, veterans can take part in physical training opportunities to help boost endurance, conditioning, flexibility, and muscle strength.
