CONSULTING & TRAINING – GENERAL

Our team at GetBraille.com specializes in helping businesses and organizations accommodate individuals who are visually impaired. Our services can take a few forms: working with you to accommodate a specific individual, training your staff to work with folks who are visually impaired, or working with organizations like yours to accommodate members of the visiting public at large with disabilities.

Interacting with individuals who are blind or visually impaired can be intimidating for some. Often, people are unsure of how to approach or communicate with someone who is blind, and this can lead to feelings of awkwardness or discomfort. However, it is important to remember that people who are blind are just like everyone else; the lack of visual acuity being just one small part of what makes up the full person. GetBraille.com offers consulting services along with accessible materials to assist corporations, organizations, and municipal governments with best practices on how to effectively support persons with visual impairments as employees, colleagues, customers, or constituents. Many individuals who are blind or visually impaired lead independent and active lives. It’s important to treat all people with respect and avoid making assumptions about their needs.
