At the Charles W. McDowell Rehabilitation Center, we are committed to the mission of the agency to assist individuals who are blind and visually impaired in achieving their educational, vocational and independent living goals. Training opportunities at the center are designed to promote independence.
We offer programs to meet an individual’s training needs. A vocational or independent living counselor will determine an individual’s eligibility to receive services at the center. Once a person is referred to the center training program, they participate in activities that will assist them in meeting their goals. There is no direct charge for training, instruction or room and board while at the center. The training components offered are:
•Orientation and Mobility
We focus on training that assists an individual in obtaining the skills they need to be independent in all areas of their life. The length of the rehabilitation program at the center depends on the needs of each individual. We offer highly qualified rehabilitation staff members that provide support and instruction in a professional environment.
We are committed to providing services that empower individuals who are blind and visually impaired to fully participate in their employment, community and society.
