People who are blind or have low vision, with the right training and accommodations, can do any job that fits their particular interests, skills and abilities.

How can DSB help me find or keep a job?
We are experts in employing people who are blind or have low vision.

Our counselors and staff:

  • Help participants identify what tools or skills they may need to prepare for the career of their choice.
  • Support and encourage participants as they learn skills to overcome barriers, regain self-confidence and obtain or maintain employment.

In addition, we can work with you to explore opportunities for self-employment through either your own business or through our Business Enterprise Program (BEP).
