How Parent Education Group Helps Your Family

Our Parent Education Group is one way that we share pertinent information and resources with the parents and caregivers of our students with visual impairments and blindness.

Periodically, families and other persons who play key roles in the development of our youth program participants are invited to come together in a variety of informative gatherings. These include presentations by prominent guest speakers, demonstrations of adaptive techniques or devices, family centered activities that allow a hands-on experience of vision rehabilitation, and sharing of testimonials, to name only a few.

Our goal is that we bring awareness to important tools, programs, and networks that are beneficial to both the child and the family. We do this in order to inspire growth among the students and encouragement and hope among the people of significance in the child’s life.
