BESB: Message from Executive Director

Welcome to the web site describing services available to clients served by Department of Rehabilitation Services, Bureau of Education and Services for the Blind (BESB).   

Our goal is to provide effective and efficient services that result in better opportunities, independence and community access for people who experience significant visual loss. These programs offer comprehensive services that are customized to each consumerís specific situation. Rehabilitation professionals are available to come to the homes, schools and places of employment of consumers, delivering specialized independent living, educational and vocational training. In addition, the Business Enterprises Program offers a unique opportunity for people who are blind to become entrepreneurs. 

As you explore the contents of this web site to learn more about these services, you will find brief summaries of programs as well as detailed policy manuals.  Our commitment to an open government experience includes distributing these policies in full detail, so that consumers, advocates and family members will be better informed to make important personal decisions regarding options that are available.

Your ideas and suggestions are always welcomed and encouraged, so please feel free to call, email or write us with recommendations.

BESB, Brian Sigman, 184 Windsor Ave, Windsor, CT 06095, 860-602-4000,
