60% of children diagnosed with a visual impairment in the US today have CVI. We’re committed to helping kids and families because kids with CVI can't wait.
1 in 4 people have a disability. We consult with business, higher ed, healthcare and other industries to ensure their digital products are accessible to all.
Children in 92 countries and all 50 states have access to a Perkins-trained teacher. Because we believe every child can learn.
Students from every program contributed paintings, drawings, pottery sculptures and more.
