Support for teenagers
You may feel like your visual impairment or blindness will make your adjustment to an independent life difficult. But teenagers all over the country have gone through that same adjustment successfully, and we can help you connect with them. You will have the opportunity to talk about common social, emotional, academic, and practical concerns connected with having a vision impairment.
Our free teen support network is for high school students, grades 10, 11, and 12 who are visually impaired or blind. Every week the group meets by phone to share experiences and ask questions.
You can remain anonymous, just listen, or share things you’ve learned that may help others. The choice is yours.
