NABA's Business Operation Procedures

NABA is still here to help, just as we have been for over 110 years!

    • NABA social workers are meeting remotely with participants referred by the NYS Commission for the Blind providing support, counseling and sharing community resources to help them cope with their current circumstances. Instructors are remotely teaching daily living skills and assistive technology whenever possible.

 

    • NABA staff are remotely completing assessments for services and contacting all participants in programs regularly.

 

    • Employment specialists continue to pursue summer work experiences for teens and college students and to work with those seeking permanent jobs to improve their readiness. They are monitoring those who started positions recently to support them and their employers in successful placements.

 

    • Staff are developing informational videos for parents of children with visual impairments to foster independent living skills while some families are spending more time together.

 

    • Rehabilitation staff continue to send out adaptive equipment orders/purchases to people in the community when requested.

 

    • ¬†Instructors are working on long-term planning and projects to enhance future programs and participant services while they are unable to make in-person visits to teach.
