Counselling Services for the Visually Impaired (VIs) in Singapore

Problem Statement

Lack of Support Services in Helping Persons Cope with Loss of Sight

Currently, persons who have lost their sight are generally left on their own to cope with the issues related to blindness. A person with visual-related changes or challenges may add a unique set of realistic and practical aspects to his or her life experiences, thus counselling may be beneficial.

Solution

Develop and Deliver a Holistic Counselling Service

Providing the blind with a counselling programme to help them transition more smoothly across life stages and enable them to use assistive technologies to overcome some of the barriers to learning, work or independent living.

Outcomes

Persons with low vision or visual impairment will be able to access counselling services and get assistance in identifying their AT needs and plan for their transition from one life stage to another.
