Excellent rehabilitation for visually impaired people
The National Center for Rehabilitation of the Blind and the Visually Impaired, founded in Cuba 17 years ago, has provided excellent rehabilitation treatments to that segment of the population.
According to experts, more than 1,600 Cubans and a group of foreign students have benefited from training programs offered by that institution.
The center teaches specialized techniques on mobility and the use of a walking stick, Braille reading and writing, the use of the abacus for calculations, daily life activities and occupational therapy.
Center officials noted the recent inauguration of a computer classroom for visually impaired students, who will also have access to virtual libraries, courses, and international meetings.
