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. Minneapolis is a vibrant and diverse city and the Twin Cities area offers a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities such as theater, canoeing, rock climbing, shopping, fishing, live music, and much more. Our students participate in activities to gain confidence and really prove to themselves that they can enjoy the same passtimes as their sighted friends and family members. We believe that blindness may change how we do some things, but it doesn’t stop us from doing them.
