Parent Infant Programs for the Blind/Visually Impaired

Mission Statement

The Parent Infant Program for the Blind and Visually Impaired (PIPBVI) provides an array of services to families of children with vision loss aged birth to three.   The service options range from home-based, community/center, to toddler/play-group classes. The Early Intervention Vision Specialist works with parents and caregivers to address the child’s individual developmental needs impacted by the vision loss. Families and vision specialists work together to give each child the skills specific to their unique needs, preparing them for a future of reaching their fullest potential.  PIPBVI strives to help every child develop all their senses by encouraging touching and movement, listening, smelling, utilizing compensatory skills, maximizing functional vision, and creating opportunities for learning and exploration. We believe early identification and building a solid foundation in all areas of development will prepare ALL children to function at their highest potential. ​
