For Parents of Children with Vision Loss
Monthly support and education meetings are held to provide families with opportunities to better understand their child’s special needs and strengths, find out about available community resources and learn to advocate for their child’s future. Parent mentors also offer support on an individual basis.
For Adults with Vision Loss and Family Members
Vision Forward offers a weekly daytime session to help adults of all ages and at all stages of vision loss and their family members, cope with the emotional impact of vision loss. Participants will build coping skills, learn practical strategies for completing tasks, and discover resources available to help make adjusting to vision loss easier.
For Adults with Vision Loss
Regular monthly evening support groups are held for adults with low vision. Participants gather to share experiences and gain new awareness and approaches to managing the challenges of life with vision impairment. Family members are welcome to participate.
