Handbook of Resources and Services For Persons Who Are Visually Impaired

This Handbook of Resources and Services has been prepared to provide an overview of services available to a person with vision loss and is not intended to replace in-depth information about any particular service or program. Since most people who lose vision are more than fifty years of age, the Handbook is directed to the older population. You may download the complete Handbook in PDF format at the appropriate link listed on this page. A copy of the Handbook is available, free of charge, in a CD version upon request from the Office of Services to the Blind.

This publication is in Adobe Acrobat "PDF" format. If you do not have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, click on the Adobe Acrobat icon, and you will be given instructions on how to download this free software.
