Welcome to AER Online
Professional Recruitment Flyers Available
The AER Professional Recruitment Committee has completed production of four flyers that members may use to help recruit others to become professionals serving those who are blind and visually impaired. Flyers for Vision Rehabilitation Therapists, Teachers of the Visually Impaired, Low Vision Therapists, and Orientation & Mobility Specialists are posted on the AER website so that you may download and copy them for distribution at career days, chapter meetings, teacher lounges, etc. The two-sided flyers are available in color and black & white. Each flyer covers typical job activities, why professionals like the job, how to become a blind & visually impaired professional, and employment locations. AER commends the Professional Recruitment Committee and the numerous volunteers who contributed their expertise to the creation of these resources.

International in scope, AER's membership consists of a very diverse group, including administrators, vision rehabilitation therapists (formerly known as rehabilitation teachers), orientation and mobility specialists, low vision therapists, itinerant teachers, and support personnel, who work with infants, children and teens, adults, seniors, and veterans. Whatever the specialty, all AER members are committed to the principle that blind and visually impaired persons have unique needs which require specialized services delivered by trained individuals.
