Individuals with visual impairments experience varying degrees of need for professional services depending upon age, lifestyle, community characteristics, and their own unique visual function. It is the goal of North Dakota Vision Services/School for the Blind (NDVS/SB) to assist individuals in reaching their personal goals through assessment and training. Instruction can take place on-site in Grand Forks, in the home, on the job, or wherever an individual may need guidance.
