Steve Kelley Interview

March 30, 2018

Steven Kelley, a certified Vision Rehabilitation Therapist (CVRT) sat down with Portland Media to talk about vision rehabilitation services throughout Maine. With the approach of Vision Rehabilitation Awareness Week, April 8-14, 2018, in honor of Anne Sullivan’s birthday, one of the pioneers of vision rehab, it is a great opportunity to talk about how Mainers experiencing a vision loss can get connected to services through Maine’s Division for the Blind (DBVI) and The Iris Network.

Highly trained Vision Rehab Therapists are available statewide to work with individuals experiencing a vision loss to teach adapted skills for reading, employment, leisure activities, managing the home, school , and other activities of daily living.

Individuals may make a referral themselves or for a friend or family member, no doctor’s referral is required for VRT services. Most VRT services are provided statewide at no out-of-pocket cost! 

To make a referral: 

Division for the Blind and Visually Impaired (DBVI)  toll free: 1-877-594-5627

The Iris Network  207-774-6273
