VCB Family Weeks

For every session, families will have the chance to learn together through specialized activities in a fun environment; including all of VCB’s facilities such as the pool and gym! Participants will receive training in large and small groups from Certified Vision Rehabilitation Therapists/Orientation and Mobility Specialists, and Teachers for the Blind focused on activities of daily living and safe navigation. Workshops will also be held for parents to provide information and resources to support your child.
