Working with Older Individuals who are Blind

These courses were developed by the Older Individuals who are Blind Technical Assistance and Training Center (OIB-TAC) located at the National Research & Training Center on Blindness and Low Vision (NRTC) at Mississippi State University. The OIB-TAC provides training and technical assistance to designated state agencies and others serving older individuals who are blind or visually impaired. The OIB-TAC is funded by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) and receives project support from American Foundation for the Blind, Helen Keller National Center for Deaf-Blind Youth and Adults, Hadley Institute of the Blind and Visually Impaired, and VisionServe Alliance. For a list of other courses that may be useful to staff working with older individuals who are blind, look on our Community of Practice website.
