Have you experienced difficulty requesting accommodations to take a 
high stakes licensing or certification examination because of your 
blindness? Did you request accommodations because of your blindness 
and been denied? Or did you make arrangements for accommodations and 
experience difficulty when taking the exam? If so, the Human Services 
Division of the National Federation of the Blind needs to hear from you!

                 One of the priorities of the Division is to remove 
the barriers blind professionals in the Human Services fields, such 
as social workers, counselors, speech pathologists, genetic 
counselors, medical professionals, etc., face when attempting to 
fulfill the requirements of their professional credentialing due to 
their blindness. If you have faced difficulties with your 
professional examination, please complete the brief questionnaire 
that follows my signature and return it to us as soon as possible to

If you need assistance completing this questionnaire for any reason 
or have additional questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch 
with me. My contact information is below my signature.

With warm regards,
