For nearly 160 years, visually impaired students and adults have depended on APH for educational and independent living products. As mandated in the federal Act to Promote the Education of the Blind (1879), APH is the official supplier of educational materials for blind students in the United States who are working at less than college level. APH is an unusual organization, as we are both a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and a manufacturing company.
