Organizations Helping Blind Children and Their Families
FamilyConnect relies on national and local organizations throughout the United States to help create content and foster community on the web site. These national and local organizations help to populate the FamilyConnect Calendar of Events and News and Announcements.
We are grateful to our National Partners, who provide current and reliable information about their programs that are available nationwide to parents and children:
American Printing House for the Blind
Described and Captioned Media Program
Hadley School for the Blind
Jewish Guild Healthcare
United States Association for Blind Athletes
National Partners—Eye Conditions
We are also grateful to our Eye Condition Partners, who host the community pages for specific eye problems—monitoring message boards, posting relevant content, and linking parents to more detailed information.
Focus On Vision Impairment (FOVI)—Cortical Visual Impairment
Foundation for Retinal Research—Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis
National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation (NOAH)—Albinism
Perkins School for the Blind—Deaf-blindness
National, Regional, and State Organizations
Hundreds of public and private schools, agencies, and organizations who serve children with visual impairments have full-page profiles highlighting their services, which can be searched and browsed via the Find Services tool on FamilyConnect.
