From the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities:

The Family Engagement Series is designed to unlock your strength, build a foundation, and learn skills and strategies to manage family stressors. These hands-on sessions will teach you practical ways to manage pressure, patience, and learn creative ways to modify your existing methods of coping and caring for those you love.

The Family Engagement Series will be an opportunity for families to get personal and work together to solve common - and uncommon - family stressors. Moderators will work with each group's real-life obstacles to find solutions that work for your entire family. Your presence is important because we cannot have these conversations without you.

OSSB Stakeholder Retreat

The first OSSB Stakeholder Retreat was a success. We welcomed representatives from various parts of our community including students, staff, parents, alumni, neighbors, businesses, and more. We were honored to have the current State Board of Education president, Tess Elshoff, attend as well. Feedback from attendees was valuable and will be used for decisions and planning going forward.

OSSB STEP Program Application (Updated for 2018-19)

The Ohio State School for the Blind is excited to announce the job readiness program, STEP, for the upcoming 2018-19 school year. We have developed a year-long comprehensive job skills training and Expanded Core Curriculum program for students with visual impairments who have decided to defer their diploma. Job readiness is taught in the community at various internship sites based on the students’ interest and skill set. The students continue their skill development by living in dorms on campus during the week. We are looking for students who are motivated and want to be competitively employed upon completion of this program. Please click on the link for additional information and contact information.
