Outreach Regions

APH continues to expand its reach through our strategically placed Regional Specialists. Regional Specialists meet the unique needs of EOTs, professionals, families, and other service providers working with students who are blind or low vision by providing tailored support to communities. These experienced professionals are charged with sharing craft knowledge across the field, building local networks of support, assisting with APH products and services, and facilitating solutions. Regional Specialists are available to provide support at conferences, regional events, colleges/universities, public and private schools, rehabilitation centers, and more…so ask!

As part of APH’s ongoing goal to provide regional support, we are working towards establishing regional centers for assistive technology training. The first established regional partnership, the Center for Assistive Technology Training (CATT), is a collaboration between APH and the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind (AIDB). The CATT project has been expanded in the Southwest through a partnership with the Foundation for Blind Children (FBC) and in the Northwest through a partnership with the Washington State School for the Blind (WSSB). Our team is here to build, train, and support our field and all those working for our students’ success.
