VIEWS for the Visually Impaired

VIEWS for the Visually Impaired is the parents' voice for families with children who are blind, low vision, or Deafblind.

Are you interested in learning how you can help and encourage your child to flourish in and out of the classroom? Maybe you're passionate about being a voice of change to eliminate the challenges that frustrate your child? Or, are you just looking to connect with more parents who have faced the same issues as you?
