WonderBaby.org, a project funded by Perkins School for the Blind, is dedicated to helping parents of young children with vision impairments as well as children with multiple disabilities. Here you’ll find a database of articles written by parents who want to share with others what they’ve learned about playing with and teaching a blind child, as well as links to meaningful resources and ways to connect with other families.
Taken from website:
Hi there! My name is Amber Bobnar. Welcome to WonderBaby.org!
I began this site in 2006 when my son, Ivan, was only one year old. He had just been diagnosed with LCA, a rare retinal disorder, and we were desperately searching for support and answers. At the time I thought it might be a good idea to gather everything I found into one place.
In 2011 WonderBaby teamed up with Perkins in order to provide more features and support for families through the internet. My original intent for the site was just to link to resources I found on the web, but before I knew it I was writing more and more about Ivan and all he had to teach us! I soon learned that other parents were experiencing this too… we all know that our children are full of wonder and they amaze us every day. As we focus on teaching our children all they need to learn in order to be as independent as possible we are often surprised to find out that we are learning so much from them!
If you want to share your story or have any ideas or advice for other parents, we’d love to hear it! Please contact us!
