Overview/Types of Programs

There are many different types of programs for youth who are blind or visually impaired with additional disabilities. Some are in residential schools for the blind, while some are in ordinary schools with their sighted peers. Still others do not attend school and are served by Community-Based Rehabilitation (CBR) Services. There is no single type of program that is best for all youth, and services will depend on what is available in a specific area.
