Message from the President

At Perkins School for the Blind, we aim to serve and connect with students and young adults with visual impairment, as well as the families, teachers, administrators and other allies who work with them. 

To learn more, I invite you to read some of our latest stories, which cover a few of the many ways we’re reaching out to local, regional and national communities to make this work as impactful as possible. Or read this moving story from our own Teri Turgeon. First introduced to Perkins while seeking resources for her young daughter, she now serves as director of Community Programs developing a support system that goes far beyond our physical campus. I'd also like to highlight music therapy at Perkins, both for the social and educational benefits it provides across campus and the way it connects to the larger community.

We are committed to bringing our resources and approaches to those who can benefit from them, wherever they are. With your support, we hope to continue to expand this work.
