Who we are...

Partners for Pediatric Vision is a non-profit organization that offers vision education and support to families who have questions about how to help their child with visual impairment by phone, video and telehealth calls. In addition, we are available to sit in on pediatric vision exams to help families understand how their child is using functional vision and ways to accommodate for vision loss.

Partners for Pediatric Vision staff have experience and training in assessing the unique learning needs of babies, young children and teens with visual impairment. Our team of Vision Educators demonstrate what can be done to compensate for reduced sight at the time of diagnosis and throughout childhood. We provide care coordination amongst a network of community professionals to link children with visual impairment and their families to education, social services and medical care. Our goal is to help families access the information and services they need to help their child

adapt to vision loss and succeed.​​
