A visually impaired or blind student may be highly motivated and highly educated, but without the proper adaptive devices (tools) they are not able to perform to their highest level. Visually impaired and blind students need special “tools” to interact and compete with their sighted peers. Unfortunately, many families cannot afford these tools for their children due to their financial situation.
To provide financial assistance to the families of visually impaired and blind students (pre K – Transition) who are residents of Colorado. This assistance is to help purchase necessary adaptive equipment which students may own and utilize in their home, school, and community. These tools will help support literacy and the pursuit of higher education.
Since 2007, $230,000 has been awarded to over 120 families.
