Support services for our students’ families
Family Support Services are provided free of charge to parents and caregivers of students at the Blind Children’s Center. Our trained, bilingual Family Workers are experts in supporting new parents of a child who is blind and navigating a complex medical system. All the members of our Family Services team have been personally impacted by blindness, giving them a personal and unique perspective.
Through weekly parent support groups, ongoing one on one strategy sessions, and frequent doctor and medical visits, these key staff members provide a layer of support which is needed desperately during the uncertain and challenging first few years of a blind child’s life.
Parents, caregivers, as well as siblings and grandparents are included in each step of the educational and therapeutic process at the Blind Children’s Center to ensure every student we serve has the chance to succeed and reach his or her highest potential.
