Happy Holidays From FamilyConnect!

Scott TruaxIt’s the time of year again when we all face the task of finding the perfect gift for our children and loved ones. It can be especially difficult to find toys that will be a real winner with our children who are blind or visually impaired when so many toys require vision to enjoy them.

We have assembled some information that could help you in that search for toys that your child who is visually impaired will enjoy.

There is also information on how to plan activities to include your child in the family holiday events. Here is our FamilyConnect Holiday Guide to Toys, Games, and Gadgets for Children Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired.

For those who will be traveling this season we also have an article on considerations to make when traveling with your visually impaired child, written by Orientation and Mobility specialists. This article gives great information on car trips and visits to community resources such as museums.

Most of all this is a time of year to enjoy spending time with family and friends. I wish you a wonderful holiday season!
