Mission Statement

The mission of the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired (CCVI) is to prepare children with visual impairments, including those with multiple disabilities, to function at their highest potential in the sighted world.

Description

Serving more than 200 children annually, CCVI is the only school in the Kansas City area that offers specialized services for blind and visually impaired children, including those with multiple disabilities, from birth through school age and their families. CCVI provides a comprehensive program, including special instruction, individualized therapy, consulting services and supportive family education, regardless of the family's ability to pay, while fostering community awareness. Services are provided beginning in infancy through the Infant Program. This program provides regularly scheduled home-based instruction and Center-based evaluations of the infant's developmental progress. Preschool and kindergarten classes at the Center continue the child's preparation for eventual entry into the public or private school systems. Speech, occupational, physical and aquatic therapies, braille instruction, orientation and mobility, assistive technology and low vision training are additional services available.
