Anyone know a trainer?
Have a BIL who's fast losing sight and will need one.
Thanks

Getting into contact with local (meaning state, not specifically to just community) sight impairment groups, etc will be a great way to gain access to information regarding such resources. What state is he located in (not sure if he is near you or not)? That might help narrow down suggestions for you.
