Your child’s future is limitless.
Your child can dream big and achieve anything she sets her mind to. As accessibility awareness and technology continue to grow, so do opportunities for children with vision loss. From education and reading to games and sports, your child’s future is full of possibility.
If you have the right tools, nothing can stop you.
“By using FamilyConnect, I found many useful tips. As my daughter went through school, she did really well. She learned braille. She was a bright student. She learned mobility with a cane. She graduated high school and earned a college degree.”

Currently 24 states are participating in Babies Count, a national database in the US that collects epidemiologic and demographic information on infants and toddlers between the ages of birth and 36 months who are blind or visually impaired. Information from this database has been used to make policy and budget decisions, to expand programs, to drive medical and educational research, and to track the changing face of blindness of children in our country today.
APH is proud to offer Braille Tales, free print/braille books for preschoolers who are visually impaired. Early reading develops braille awareness skills and an enthusiasm for literacy in the hearts of young children.
