Our Mission is to provide early intervention, education and services for blind, visually impaired or deaf-blind children and their families to empower independence.
Blind Childrenís Learning Center recently celebrated its 50th anniversary of providing life-changing services for children with a visual impairment. We provide comprehensive educational and therapeutic services to blind, visually impaired and deaf-blind children throughout Orange County and parts of Southern California. All services are designed to optimize each childís development and provide opportunities to lead a meaningful and productive life. Parents receive support during each and every step of their childís journey toward independence. 2012 highlights include: Infant Specialists made home visits to provide early intervention services designed to give babies the best possible start in life. Parents learned how to become their childís best advocates, minimize delays and encourage appropriate development. Blind, visually impaired, sighted, and deaf-blind children (six months to six years) attended classes in the Early Childhood Center where they learned to confidently explore the world around them. They were prepared to make a successful transition to their local public school Kindergarten. School age students (K-12th grade) received individualized training in Braille, mobility, adaptive technology, and daily living skills in their public school classrooms. They also had access to mentoring and tutoring services to develop the strong foundation necessary for independence and future success. Students received individual and group speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy and counseling to overcome obstacles and develop to their full potential. Students had access to our on-site Low vision clinic with a full range of optometry services. A pediatric optometrist provided low vision exams, prescriptions for visual aids, vision stimulation and rehabilitation to maximize each childís use of any functional vision they may have.We are grateful to the many supporters who partner with us to provide the resources necessary to operate our programs. Nearly 1400 volunteers assisted with fundraising, campus maintenance, summer camps, classroom activities, fieldtrips, and providing professional services. Individual, group, foundation and corporate donors provided vital funding to operate existing and new programs.
