Beyond Blindness Empowers Children with Visual Impairments

Beyond Blindness helps kids with vision loss and blindness discover their potential. The services that they offer include early intervention, education, enrichment, and family support. Thanks to Beyond Blindness, eleven-year-old Mason Lopes has accomplished major milestones despite his optic nerve hypoplasia.

“We rely so much on our sight as adults, and when you think of kids who are developing … your ABCs and your 123s, kids learn all of that from looking at books and pictures,” said Mason’s mother, Charissa Lopes. “We were able to come to Beyond Blindness and have people who specialize in children who can’t see and to give them those tactile cues, to motivate them.”

Please reach out to SDCB to learn more about our vision rehabilitation programs and services for adults.
