MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Council of the Blind and Visually Impaired now offers vision rehabilitation therapy at its Madison offices.

The council announced that appointments at the new classroom at their Williamson Street office can be scheduled starting Monday. The therapy allows those with vision loss to live more independently.

“This represents a significant step forward in our mission to empower those living with vision loss to live independently and with dignity,” WCBVI executive director Denise Jess said.

The service is meant to teach skills including medication management, timekeeping, and how to use smart speakers and TV remotes. WCBVI leaders said that, right now, only a fraction of people who could benefit from vision rehabilitation therapy have access to it.
