Our Mission is:

To serve as a national and international forum for information on current issues in certification and related legislation; provide updates on University Personnel Preparation issues and trends; and opportunities for continuing education, specialized meetings, and training forums.

To facilitate the exchange of current resources and product information, updates members on research and educational trends, provides university certification standards to the AER University Review program, and promotes employment opportunities.

To provide instruction and guidance in adaptive independent living skills, enabling adults who are blind and visually impaired to confidently carry out their daily activities. Vision Rehabilitation Therapists are active members of multidisciplinary service teams, providing consultation and referrals utilizing community resources.
