Blind Childrens Center Annual Report, 2008-2009
Blind Childrens Center
When entering the Blind Childrens Center (BCC), what a person might not realize is that four of the five visually impaired children in a classroom share the same diagnosis of Optic Nerve Hypoplasia (OHN). ONH is the leading cause of blindness and visual impairment in young children. It is important that these children participate in an inclusive setting where there are continuous opportunities to interact with the support of typically developing peers. With this in mind, the BCC rendered more extensive services for the year 2008-2009 to cater the needs of these children than ever before. This article presents the accomplishments and activities achieved by the Blind Childrens Center in the 2008-2009 school year in terms of: (1) Direct services; (2) Infant, Pre-school, and kindergarten programs; (3) Special events; (4) Field programs; and (5) Outreach activities. Fiscal information and development/administration activities are included. [For the 2006-2007 edition of this report, see ED498942].
