Adjustment to Blindness Training at Blind Inc.
BLIND, Incorporated is an adjustment to blindness training center that offers training for adults, children, teenagers, and seniors. We teach the skills that blind people need to become independent and employable such as braille, home management, the use of the white cane, and computers with screen reading software, etc. But just as importantly, we instill in our students the confidence to put these skills into practice. We utilize the positive view of blindness of the National Federation of the Blind. We work from the premise that blindness doesn’t have to be a tragedy. We know that, if given training and opportunity, blind people can live full and productive lives.
BLIND, Incorporated is located in beautiful Minneapolis, Minnesota, in the historic Charles S. Pillsbury mansion, (Opens in a new window).
