About Services for Blind and Visually Impaired

We help increase independence, community integration and productivity for the blind and visually impaired. We accomplish this by providing adjustment-to-blindness services, low-vision screening, magnification and other assistive aids.

Our programs include the following:

  • Training and Adjustment Services: Helps students achieve greater independence through a mastery of skills. Classes are offered Monday through Friday and include cane travel, Braille literacy, computers and adaptive technology, home management, wood shop and needle arts.
  • Low Vision Services Program: Provides devices, resources and services to help individuals learn how to use their remaining vision effectively.
  • Business Enterprise Program: Offers an opportunity to train and license blind and visually impaired individuals to operate their own businesses, including food service and vending routes in government facilities.
  • Deafblind Program: Provides services for blind and visually impaired individuals who also have a hearing loss.
  • Vision Screening Program: Performs vision screening tests for Utah children to detect either poor vision or other risk factors that could interfere with normal visual development.
