National Organization Supports Society Staff Person

P1000737VisionServe Alliance, the national organization for agencies around the country who serve individuals who are blind and visually impaired, has awarded a $550 stipend to Society Low Vision Therapist Karly Angeli to support her efforts towards National Certification as a Vision Rehabilitation Therapist. As well as working towards her certification as a Vision Rehabilitation Therapist, Mrs. Angeli recently received her national certification as a Certified Low Vision Therapist through the Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals. Each certification requires a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree and 350 hours of internship before being eligible to take the national certification examination.
Society President David Ekin is shown presenting the $550 check to Ms. Angeli. In making the presentation Mr. Ekin stated “this demonstrates both Mrs. Angeli’s expertise and knowledge as well as our national organization’s recognition of the value and importance of the services the Society provides.”


Helping Other Organizations in the Community

It is very rewarding when we get feedback on how we have helped individuals with low vision live the best life possible.  It is equally fulfilling when we are able to help other community organizations adapt their materials to best accommodate those with vision loss. Our Technology Specialist recently provided consultation to the Daughters of Charity Foundation on best practices and ideas to make their website more attractive and useful for individuals who have low vision. Having completed their new website, one can see how they have made it more accessible for individuals who have low vision. This important Foundation supports so many organization in the greater St. Louis area, including the Society through their area of emphasis on “Seniors Living Independently”.
