Helping prepare blind and visually-impaired young people for adulthood
Vision Forward’s School-age Program builds resiliency and develops skills in line with the Expanded Core Curriculum through a wide range of social engagement opportunities. Children with vision loss are encouraged to interact with peers and learn through meaningful life experiences.
Our program also serves as a critical connection for teachers, paraprofessionals and parents of elementary, middle and high school students and after high school graduation transitions.
In addition, our program provides training and educational opportunities for parents and school professionals so they feel confident in their ability to support school-age students with vision loss.
School-age Activities and Events
Our Event Calendar lists upcoming opportunities for school-age children and their families, such as the Braille Challenge, Braille Games, Beep Baseball, Spring Festival, and Rainbow Day Camp.
Support Groups: Vision Forward can help match parents up with others who have had similar experiences and can lend their support.

Braille Instruction: Parents and guardians of children who are braille users can learn braille in our individually-tailored learning sessions.
