FamilyConnect Success Stories

Whether you’re just starting your journey as a parent of a child with a visual impairment or you’re at a new transition point along the way; FamilyConnect has resources to help answer your questions about helping your child succeed at home, in school, and in your community. Families who have used FamilyConnect share their stories about what FamilyConnect means to them.

First, we have Celeste, a young woman reflecting on how both her TVI and her mom used FamilyConnect resources along the way. Celeste sees herself as “just a normal person.” She has an associates degree and a job, lives independently, and has an active social life (even with COVID lockdowns). Celeste recognizes that the information her family and teachers received from FamilyConnect helped her succeed in school and life.

We are also featuring Meghan and Kait, our dynamic mother-daughter duo who use and contribute to FamilyConnect resources. Keep this page bookmarked for more stories from families like yours. These uplifting accounts can help you envision your child’s journey to realizing their dreams for success.
