Vision Rehabilitation Therapist Appreciation Week

Vision Rehabilitation Therapist (VRT) Appreciation Week is observed the week of April 14 to commemorate Anne Sullivan’s birth date on April 14, 1866. We remember Anne Sullivan as one of the early pioneers of vision rehabilitation for her work with Helen Keller.

Coincidentally, VRT Appreciation Week follows National Library Week. VRTs frequently work with clients who are learning alternative methods of reading, including large print, reading with magnification, digital text, screen readers, and braille. In many cases, the vision rehabilitation therapist is the professional teaching consumers how to access and use the Talking Books Program from the National Library Service (NLS).
