Visually Impaired Preschool Services

Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS) is here for your child and your entire family. VIPS is the only agency in Kentucky or Indiana that provides early intervention and educational services to children who are blind and visually impaired from birth to age 5. VIPS also provides strong support systems for parents, siblings, grandparents and the whole family.

VIPS believes that children with visual impairments are children first and need the same types of experiences as other children. They need to play with friends, swing on swings and go to new places. However, these children have to gather information about the world in different ways. Certified teachers from VIPS who specialize in early childhood education can show these children how to use their remaining vision and other senses to learn about their world. Parents and caregivers also learn about their child’s diagnosis, are provided with tools for teaching at home and gain a better understanding on how to advocate for their child.
