Last year, despite challenges from the pandemic we still served over 700 children. We need your help to continue our critical work to make a difference in the lives of children with vision loss!

We need our VIPS supporters help more than ever during this uniquely challenging time with the gift of a new donation or pledge, or continuing your existing your support. If you are not a monthly donor--now would be a great time to initiate a monthly gift. The families we serve depend on our teachers and we depend on you to help us in our critical mission to provide early intervention to every child with blindness or low vision.

VIPS Every Child Can! Video Series

Have you worried about how your young child or student who is visually impaired is going to learn all he or she needs in order to achieve success?

This video offers a preschool-level perspective on the Expanded Core Curriculum for Students Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired (ECC). The ECC addresses nine critical skill areas these students must learn in order to find success in school and in life. However, they can be difficult to learn with limited or no vision.

The objective of the video is to demystify the ECC for parents of young children who are visually impaired and for their general education teachers who may have limited expertise and experience teaching children with vision loss. The video also encourages parents and professionals to advocate for use of the ECC, and to implement it at home, in the classroom, and in the community.

Join us for a joyful journey through the ECC in a preschool for the visually impaired that also enrolls sighted peers, and share in the inspirational perspectives of adults who are visually impaired as they talk about how learning ECC skills has enhanced their lives and careers.
