The anniversary of the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is July 26th.
June is National Safety Month, and when discussing safety with older individuals, especially those with visual impairment, the issue of falls often comes up.
In program evaluations with seniors, it seems like a small but reliable percentage of OIB consumers report having low vision aids and devices that they no longer use.
There are many different brands of hand-held video magnifiers on the market.
The Older Individuals who are Blind Technical Assistance Center is a development of the National Research & Training Center on Blindness and Low Vision (NRTC) at Mississippi State University, focused on agencies serving older individuals who are blind (OIB). This grant (#H177Z150003) is funded by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) under the U.S. Department of Education.
