The Kentucky office for the blind is holding two public focus groups as part of its triennial statewide needs assessment. The office for the blind provides many services to visually impaired Kentuckians, including job counseling, education, and assistive technology.
The focus groups will survey eye physicians, educators and employers of the visually impaired, and individuals receiving services from the office. “We’ll look at all the information we get, and identify any trends from what we receive, and it may be that we would position ourselves to look at how we can improve those current services or what additional services we can provide that will assist individuals,” says Cora McNabb, an Office for the Blind staff-member.
The focus groups will be held in Louisville on July 11 from 1-3 p.m. at the Charles W. McDowell Center (8412 Westport Road), and in Lexington on July 12 from 1-3 p.m. at the Bluegrass Council of the Blind (1093 S. Broadway, Suite 1220).
