Vision Forward’s Vision Rehabilitation Therapy Programs include low vision, music, occupational, physical and speech-language therapy for young children, youth and adults of all ages who have varying degrees of vision loss. Each therapy has a specific purpose, and the therapies are often used together for maximum effectiveness in helping individuals manage everyday life with vision loss.

The Catholic Community Foundation’s generous support of Vision Rehabilitation Therapy Programs allows individuals of all ages and at all stages of vision loss to have meaningful opportunities to be vital, contributing members of our society.
