Welcome to the Bureau of Services for Blind Persons
The Michigan Bureau of Services for Blind Persons (BSBP) believes in the capacity of people who are blind or visually impaired to achieve employment and independence. BSBP provides training and other services that empower people to achieve their individual goals.
If you live in Michigan and you're blind or visually impaired, the Bureau of Services for Blind Persons will work with you to define your goals and identify appropriate training and other services. Funded by federal and state taxes, BSBP provides counseling and training in skills for daily living without vision. Depending upon your needs and eligibility for specific services, BSBP may also provide some types of adaptive equipment, computer software, and postsecondary education.
January is Braille Literacy Month in Michigan and throughout the U.S. This system of reading, around since 1824, assists individuals who are blind or visually impaired in the workplace and the classroom and allows them to engage in a lifetime of learning. Braille skills are supported in the state by the Bureau of Services for Blind Persons’ Training Center and the Braille and Talking Book Library.
