Association for the Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired
The only international membership organization dedicated to providing support to professionals who work in education and rehabilitation of blind and visually impaired children. The group was formed in 1984 as the result of a consolidation between the American Association of Workers for the Blind and the Association for Education of the Visually Handicapped. It is a private nonproﬁt association that coordinates biennial international conferences, assists in membership promotion and development, provides information and referrals about blindness, and works closely in planning activities and providing services to its divisions, chapters, and regions.
