We offer support for parents of children with visual impairments by helping them to find information and locate resources, and by providing tele-support groups.

Parent Support Program
We help parents find information and resources for their children who are blind or visually impaired, including those with additional disabilities.

Tele-Support Groups for Parents
We offer this free service to connect parents from around the country and abroad whose children have the same eye conditions. Groups are professionally facilitated with input from professionals knowledgeable about children’s eye conditions.

Tele-Support Group for Teens 
We offer this free service to legally blind teenagers planning to attend college.

Resources for Parents of Newly Diagnosed Children with Visual Impairments
Information and resources for parents of newly diagnosed children who are blind or visually impaired.

FamilyConnect
An online, multimedia community that gives parents of children who are visually impaired a place to support each other, share stories and concerns, and link to local resources.
