OKLAHOMA CITY –Legally blind youth and adults have four opportunities this summer to develop adaptive skills, confidence and more independence at free, week-long training programs offered by the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services.
Now in its 15th year, DRS’ Adult Blind Living Evaluation training is designed to give hope through education to newly blind individuals.
Some participants come for residential ABLE training because they live in rural areas where transportation for daily training is not feasible.
