Andrew, the quality and quantity of services you will receive depends on
where you live in Ohio. Our Bureau of Services for the Blind is part of OOD
and provides services to people who are seeking employment or over age 55.
If you are not interested in seeking employment you would contact one of
the private agencies for the blind for O&M training. I believe some of them
offer services to people who don't plan to find employment. There is
probably a charge for the training but that is determined by each agency.
We can probably give you a better answer if we know where you plan to move
