About APH Press

What We Do

APH Press is a scholarly press which supports the mission of the American Printing House for the Blind: “Empowering people who are blind or low vision by providing accessible and innovative products, materials, and services for lifelong success.”

The Press fulfills its role by publishing informative, well-researched, and innovative texts which allow people of all abilities to maximize their potential in society. The audience for our books includes people who are blind or low vision, their families, and the professionals who support them. Our authors, for the most part, are practitioners—people who have years of direct experience working with clients in a clinical setting or educating future professionals at colleges and universities.

APH Press is the leading publisher in the field of blindness and visual impairment. From books on CVI and orientation and mobility to aging and access technology, APH Press publishes top educational materials to support teachers, parents, and other educators and care providers.

APH Press provides more texts for college and university programs and more professional books on visual impairment than any other publisher in the field and is a catalyst in developing and encouraging new authors and scholarship.

APH Press is also widely recognized as the publisher of the award-winning Foundations series, the leading university textbooks on visual impairment used by special education and vision rehabilitation programs both in the United States and abroad. APH Press publications can be purchased in the APH Store.
