In addition to instruction, the successful applicant will be responsible for setting up and directing an interdisciplinary team approach to initial, in progress and exit assessments and ensuring that FOCB ‘s quality standards and philosophy are upheld in all tasks undertaken.

 

This is a wonderful opportunity to join a small but dedicated organization that prides itself in its blind leading the blind approach to gaining and retaining independence for the blind and visually impaired.
