Rehabilitation Professionals is to promote 
rehabilitation practices, policies and 
legislation that emphasize positive attitudes, 
high expectations and a belief in blind 
individuals to live full, productive and 
independent lives.  The National Association of 
Blind Rehabilitation Professionals also 
encourages research into rehabilitation issues 
and practices that will lead to more effective 
strategies to make the dreams of blind people a reality.
