Raising a Child who is Blind? Find Support, Get Educated, and Enjoy Your Child.
Learning that your child is blind or is going blind is not what you expected when you became new parents. Often there is a grieving process because of the unknown, there is resentment over the loss of normalcy and fear of how you will cope and raise your child. Know that you are not alone. There are resources and other parents on a similar path as you. Take heart in knowing that your child was created for a beautiful purpose and you are a part of his/her journey in life. Read more and find valuable resources on WonderBaby.org.
WonderBaby.org, a project funded by Perkins School for the Blind, is dedicated to helping parents of young children with visual impairments as well as children with multiple disabilities. You’ll find a database of articles written by parents who want to share with others what they’ve learned about playing with and teaching a blind child, as well as links to meaningful resources and ways to connect with other families.
