Visual impairment is a disability that affects not only the individual, but entire families and social networks. Often, visually impaired people feel isolated and dependent, and loved ones may need help understanding their feelings of loss. Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired Masters Level Social Workers help people express feelings, adjust to vision loss and make plans for the future. They also educate family members and help them take maximum advantage of community resources for the visually impaired. And if in-depth counseling is required, ABVI makes appropriate referrals to other agencies.

If you’re struggling with the adjustment of vision loss, we’re here to help!  Our Vision Rehabilitation Experts are dedicated to enhancing independence to those with visual impairment or blindness. The Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired will equip you with the tools and knowledge needed to thrive in a sighted world. Visit our Low Vision Clinic Today!

Cheri (Social Worker) started coming to visit me while I was in rehab with a broken ankle. It seems like she would show up at just the right time. She is very helpful. ABVI Supportive Counseling means a lot to me. Cheri goes above and beyond. I don’t know what I would do without her.
