The Children’s Program is focused on providing compensatory training to children with vision impairments, age 5 to 13. The goal is to provide children with training that will enable them to develop skills, behaviors, and attitudes important to function and adapt as people with a visual impairment.
Through expanded core curriculum training including adaptive daily living skills, Braille literacy, assistive technology, orientation and mobility training, self-advocacy and self-determination, and pre-employment exploration, the children will develop greater confidence and blindness skills. Services are offered 3 after school days a month, Saturdays as feasible, teacher planning days, and for 3 weeks during the summer.
Services also include our Beeping Easter Egg Hunt and our year end party. See photos from our 2016 Beeping Easter Egg Hunt. Here’s a video from our children’s summer program.
The Lighthouse is very pleased to offer a new Parent of the Visually Impaired Support/Educational Group. Lighthouse staff are asking parents interested in joining the group to answer a short questionnaire (available from the Lighthouse) to determine the best meeting time and areas of interest for educational discussions.
