We would like to thank EYE-Q for their generous $1000 grant. Many of our children suffer from decreased vision and rely on their vision to communicate. The grant will go to purchasing equipment like light boxes and magnifiers, in addition to holding workshops for parents to learn how to better use technology like tablets to help their children.
