The Association of Vision Rehabilitation Therapists (AVRT) is a professional organization dedicated to bringing together rehabilitation experts to share ideas, information, professional practices, and experiences.

AVRT strives to provide stellar professional development opportunities to Vision Rehabilitation Therapists, Orientation & Mobility Specialists, rehabilitation professionals, and educators working in the field of blindness, low vision, or related fields.

We are pleased to host the 2021 Annual Professional Development Conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  Rehabilitation professionals, educators, administrators, researchers, and others are invited to submit a proposal for a presentation. Proposals should have a practical focus and may address a specific area of rehabilitation practices or principles.  This conference will be designed to encourage participants to expand upon their teaching techniques and resources.

Please note, at this time we are planning an in-person conference. Of course, all necessary precautions will be taken to keep everyone safe. In the event it becomes impractical for us to hold an in-person event, we will again use a virtual platform. Also, if the conference is an in-person event, and if you need to present virtually, please note the reason.

The Call for Papers form may be mailed or submitted via e-mail attachment as a Word document. Call for Papers is due by Friday, April 9, 2021.  Should you require additional information, kindly contact:
