Vision Loss Rehabilitation Canada- BC: 

To support parents who are connected to the VLRC- BC Early Intervention program, we have partnered with Blind Beginnings, BC Blind Sports & Recreation and PRCVI, (Prov. Resource Centre f/t Visually Impaired) to provide a weekly email that will include an Activity of the Day. 

Most of our contact with families has been around the issue of parents looking for ideas or activities, so we will be producing an Activity of the Day supporting development for kids with vision loss and blindness.  

If you have a child with vision loss or blindness please contact bc.visionlossrehab.ca to receive the weekly flier directly to your email.
