When your child is born with blindness or low vision or acquires one through illness or injury, you may feel shocked, bewildered, and frightened. You may also find that your immediate family members, local doctors, and neighborhood schools are unfamiliar with the impact of blindness or low vision on a child’s learning and education. But you’re not alone.

National, State, and Local Organizations

A number of national organizations are dedicated to the well-being of children who are blind or low vision, and they’re important sources of information and support for you.
