Parenting a Teenager who is visually impaired

Your child is growing up and becoming more independent. Whether your teenager has recently been diagnosed with a visual impairment or has been blind or visually impaired since birth, we’ll help you confront the challenges of parenting your teen through his or her transition into adulthood. Some of the common challenges are as mentioned below –

  • Finding the right career and to fund related courses or resources
  • To support and guide them through their social life including friendship, dating etc
  • Empowering them with advanced technology to overcome their disability
  • Encouraging their involvement in social gatherings with friends and family
  • Providing right education and motivation to lead their lives more independently

Additionally, two significant concerns of many parents of teens with visual impairments are ensuring their children are adequately preparing for college and ensuring their children are adequately preparing for work. To assist you in preparing your child for college and/work, IDL Foundation provides the following resources:

  • Braille Library Facility
  • Mentoring and monitoring them for independent work life
  • Motivation and guidance for a Successful career and life overall
  • Music and Sports training
  • Social Interaction with a larger group of people

and so much more

We at IDL Foundation have been working for this cause for the last 20 years and we have had the experience of helping over 50,000+ blind people. We have specialised courses, training materials and schedules to help blind people live their life independently.
