Regardless of the database you review, unemployment among individuals who are blind, ages 16-75, is far greater than unemployment among the nondisabled population.  We need to set our goals higher, we need to free the environment of the barriers to employment for individuals with disabilities in order that they can grow and flourish.   One of the essential  functions of Rehabilitation Services for the Blind's (RSB)  vocational rehabilitation program is to assist eligible individuals  in preparing for, securing, retaining, or regaining an employment outcome that is consistent with their strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, capabilities, interests, and informed choice.

In my efforts to review the effectiveness of and consumer satisfaction with the services provided, functions performed, and employment outcomes achieved I would appreciate a few minutes of your time to respond to three survey questions.

1). What RSB services and outcomes do you value most?
2). What are the barriers to access those RSB services?
3). What direction would you like to see RSB take in the future?
