Who We Run For

Since 1952, CCVI (the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired) has prepared young children who are blind or visually impaired, including those with multiple disabilities, to reach their highest potential in the sighted world. We provides a comprehensive program for children, birth through school age, including highly-specialized instruction, therapies and family education.

The Infant Program provides regularly scheduled home-based instruction and therapy and Center-based evaluations of the infant's developmental progress. Preschool and kindergarten classes at the Center continue the child's preparation for entry into the public or private school systems. Speech, occupational, physical and aquatic therapy, braille instruction, orientation and mobility, and low vision training are additional services available.
