By offering life skills and career training programs in one location, we are the most comprehensive rehabilitation center for people who are blind or visually impaired. Our approach allows students to receive services tailored specifically to their needs.

Independence means different things to different people. It could be the ability to live and travel on one’s own, or the opportunity to go to college and join the workforce. WSB supports all skill levels and will develop a Life Skills program tailored to each student’s needs. Learn more about our Life Skills programs.
