FamilyConnect: For parents of children with visual impairments


FamilyConnect is a service offered by the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) to give parents and other family members of children who are visually impaired–and professionals who work with them–a supportive place for sharing and finding resources on raising their children from birth to adulthood. Every parent wonders, “Will I do a good job raising my child?” If your child is blind or visually impaired, you’ll have the same question…and many more. FamilyConnect has the answers. Whether your child was recently diagnosed, has been living with a visual impairment for years, or is multiply disabled, you’ll find the personal support, information, and resources you need to raise a child with vision loss.
