During the interview, Mr. Keeler had the opportunity to educate the listeners in Southern CT on the many resources at New England Low Vision and Blindness to help people who are blind or visually impaired with technology products and training services.
Mr. Keeler explained that New England Low Vision and Blindness is an assistive technology company that helps people who are blind or visually impaired with technology products and training services. And we have two locations, one here in Shelton, Connecticut, and the other in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Tony asked Mr. Keeler if New England Low Vision and Blindness worked with both people who are blind and with low vision. Mr. Keeler explained “We serve both client population. So if someone has no vision whatsoever, there are technology products available to help them. And the vast majority of our clients are typically impacted by age-related macular degeneration or similar type visual impairment, and those folks do have some vision. And so we’re really trying to share products with them, to help them to optimize the remaining vision that they have.”
Tony asked Mr. Keeler what the listener needed to do to get started. Mr. Keeler replied “Typically, we will spend about half an hour to 40 minutes on the phone with them just to kind of go over their expectations and what they would like to use the products for, identify their goals, what they’re using currently. We will then go through and make sure that we explain what resources we have available, and we typically invite them into the showroom for a two-hour demonstration, where it’s a hands-on, no pressure, no risk for them to come in. They come in with their loved ones and they get to experience the technology themselves and try it to see if it’s going to work for them.:
