Preparing for Work for Teens Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired

As you prepare your visually impaired teenager for a future career, remember it’s all about trajectory. As your child’s interests and aptitudes become clear, you can help ensure he is currently taking steps that lead to successful employment as an adult—steps such as participating in chores, partaking in part-time paid work, volunteering, mastering the expanded core curriculum, and learning the skills needed to get hired and advance in the workforce.

Utilize these resources to help your teen who is blind or visually impaired prepare for work.

Additionally, AFB CareerConnect offers a free, virtual program activity guide designed to promote employment readiness skills in teenagers who are blind or visually impaired. These lessons can be presented by teachers and/or parents.
