Technology Rehabilitation Training Services for People with Low Vision and Blindness

Ethics Policy:

Although New England Low Vision and Blindness represents nearly 100% of all major suppliers, if a student or client needs a product that we do not represent, all Technology Specialists are mandated to recommend the best technology for the student / client regardless of whether or not we can supply the product.

It is our belief that the breadth of the major technology suppliers represented by New England Low Vision and Blindness all under one roof uniquely affords us the benefit of showing top-level consumer choice to clients, where others who do not offer this breadth of choice from major suppliers fall short.
