Our education programs help children and students learn to meet developmental and educational milestones, build supportive relationships, and fully participate in their communities.
Support for Educational Needs
Our certified staff work with parents and caregivers to guide children in their physical, social, cognitive and emotional development. Children learn to optimize their remaining vision, develop their love for learning and prepare to fully participate in their communities. Parents can connect with a network of families and friends who provide emotional support and resources to advocate for their children’s educational needs.
