Parents of Children between the ages of three and six are invited to sign their children up for an exciting new program that combines socialization, creative play and entertainment!  This new program, the Zoom Zoom Room will give your child with sight loss the chance to chat and interact with others experiencing visual impairment or blindness. They will feel part of a nationwide community while playing games, listening to stories and collaborating on creative projects. Program facilitators will enlist professional authors and entertainers to keep content engaging.  This group runs via Zoom web conference every Wednesday from 6 to 7 p.m. Eastern Time. Call in information will be given upon registration.
