Raising James: Multiply Disabled, Low-Vision, Adorable

My name is Anne and this is my blog. I am a 40-year-old mother of 7-year-old twins and wife to Daniel. The main reason I am writing this blog is that my son is legally blind, in addition to having other disabilities, and I want other parents and members of NAPVI and FamilyConnect to know they're not alone.


VisionAware Blog

Timely news and interviews relating to vision loss, including the latest updates in medical research.


"Visually Impaired: Now What?"

Formerly known as the "Peer Perspectives Blog," we have renamed the blog to reflect the purpose more accurately. The posts are written by our team of peer advisors, many of whom are professionals in the field who are blind or visually impaired. The blog features solutions for living with visual impairment resulting from eye conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and retinitis pigmentosa. It includes posts about living independently, getting around, low vision, technology, cooking, and helpful products.
