Make It Take It Summer Sensory Play Group

We had a great time at Make-it Take-It. Blindness Support Services and Braille Institute had a Sensory Play Group at BSS. The kids had fun touching and feeling different textures as part of a tactile learning process.

At Blindness Support Services we train people who are blind or visually impaired with specialized equipment and computer programs. We take in various kinds of blind people with a wide variety of needs.

Whereas some are in need of Mobility training, others need Independent Living Skills training. We also have two adjustment to blindness peer support groups that facilitate people who have lost their sight and are in need of group counseling. One group is for Spanish speakers and the other is for English speakers.

We have a Blind Children's Department where preschool age blind or visually impaired children are taught with tactile learning props and teaching tools as a precursor to reading Braille.

There is a Blind parenting class for parents who are blind and need help raising children who can see.

There are Independent Living Skills instructors that go into senior citizens homes and teach independent living skills to seniors who are blind or visually impaired. There are a lot of different classes and resources here at blindness support services.

Our goal is to help people who are blind achieve a higher level of independence so they can function by themselves in society.
