How to Get to that Training Center!

We know people like you. You know that you want to get comprehensive adjustment to blindness training, and you would really like to go to an NFB training center. But you have also heard the horror stories about how difficult it is to convince your VR counselor that attending an NFB training center will give you the proper training and tools to reach your true potential.

Join us for an informative call with special guest Al Spooner, Assistant Director of Outreach and Marketing at BLIND, Inc., one of the NFB’s training centers, to learn how to work with a difficult agency. You’ll get a start to finish timeline of what documents you’ll need to fill out, how to word things, and how to problem- solve when your counselor does not respond or sidesteps your requests. You’ll also hear from Cindy Bennett, NABS Secretary and Membership Committee member on her experiences problem-solving with her state agency to get to, and to stay in training for the amount of time she needed.

When: Sunday, April 7, 7:00 P.M. Eastern
Where: Call 605-475-6700 and enter the access code 7869673 Who: Anyone who could benefit!

We look forward to sharing our insight on how to make your own, informed choice and get to that training

center! We’ll be available to answer questions after the presentation.
