YOUTH PROGRAMS (BIRTH THROUGH 18)
  • Our Child Development Program helps families of newborns adapt to raising a visually impaired child—birth through age 6—and prepare him or her for a bright future. 
  • From outdoor activities to internships, we create opportunities to help youth and teens who are blind or visually impaired gain life experiences that prepare them for the future.
