cropped-Logo-2.jpgThe South Dakota Association of the Blind (SDAB) is a 501 {c} (3) non-profit, organization made up of individuals who are blind and visually impaired and other concerned people who are interested in improving opportunities for blind and visually impaired citizens. . It was founded in 1928, when students of the School for the Blind formed an alumni association, with SDAB evolving from that organization.  In 1961 the founders of SDAB played an integral role in organizing the American Council of the Blind (ACB), a nationwide consumer advocacy organization. SDAB is an affiliate chapter of the American Council of the Blind.
