Webinar: How Assistive Technology Can Support People with Blindness or Low Vision

There is a lot of misunderstanding regarding vision loss, visual impairments and blindness. As we continue to educate society, more and more people are becoming more knowledgeable about the spectrum of vision loss and the ways someone with a visual impairment can maintain their independence through Maine’s Division for the Blind and Visual Impairment (DBVI) services. This webinar will discuss:

  • Major types of Vision Loss
  • What is DBVI and what services are available
  • Overview of AT devices that benefit people with visual impairments
  • Supportive Strategies for interacting with people with visual impairments

Presenter: Sharisse Roberts, Rehabilitation Consultant
