Pathways to Independence

Pathways to Independence(c) is a production of the Nebraska Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired. This video training series covers skills blind and visually impaired individuals use to remain independent in their homes and communities. The series is available to blind individuals to learn techniques at home, rehabilitation professionals, state agencies for the blind for staff development, and the general public.

The videos can be watched online and can be downloaded for free. If you would like to purchase a set of these videos, contact Josie Rodriguez at or call 308-632-1304. If you would like more information about services available for older Nebraskans experiencing vision loss, contact Deanna Jesse at or call 308-865-5442.
