It is important to emphasize that there is no “one right way” to do, teach, guide, or create. We encourage personalizing to your specific situation via creative & outside-of-the box thinking. Throughout this website & the associated YouTube channel we provide ideas, options, & resources to help support parents, caregivers, relatives, & educators of blind children & teens. Our approach has definitely evolved over time, starting with our combined experiences, guided by our professional & parental intuition, and very very much influenced by our interactions with blind individuals, blind-focused professionals, & parents of other blind youth around the country & the world.
Access to activities, materials, & resources will vary by one’s location & circumstances, thus ideas shared represent a potential starting point & concepts & approaches will clearly need to be individualized.
Please note that the value of networking & connecting with potential blind mentors & parents of blind children can not be over-emphasized — the internet provides amazing potential for such connections.
We encourage researching activities when appropriate prior to trying them both to optimize your experience, success, & safety.
This website is very much a work in progress & being actively built & modified as time permits. Please feel free to please bookmark us or add our website to your smartphone's or tablet's homepage.
