place on the web designed for parents of visually impaired children to share information and resources.
From the press release:
The goal of www.familyconnect.org is to provide connections and support. By providing accurate information and creating a forum for meaningful discussion, families and their visually impaired children will feel empowered to reach their full potential.
Another possibility for such a community oriented site could be connecting young people who are visually impaired with blind adults working in various fields. Telling a young person they can reach their goals is one thing, establishing mentorship’s gives the child concrete proof through real world information and experience.
