FamilyConnect is an online, multimedia community created by the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) and the National Association for Parents of Children with Visual Impairments (NAPVI). This site gives parents of visually impaired children a place to support each other, share stories and concerns, and link to local resources. The site also features a mom-authored blog, inspiring video testimonials from families, and articles authored by parents and experts in the field of blindness on multiple disabilities, technology, education, and more. From the personal to the professional, families will find all the resources they need to raise their children from birth to adulthood.
The American Foundation for the Blind and the National Association
for Parents of Children with Visual Impairments would like to thank
the Lavelle Fund for the Blind, Inc. and the Conrad N. Hilton
Foundation for their generous support as charter sponsors of
FamilyConnect. We are also grateful to The Annie E. Casey
Foundation and Morgan Stanley for their support.
