As of July 1, 2014, Blind Babies Foundation became a program of Junior Blind, a leading non-profit organization helping children and adults who are blind, visually impaired or multi-disabled achieve independence. With similar missions and visions, the union between Junior Blind and Blind Babies Foundation is a natural fit and our combined strengths will ensure brighter futures for even more babies in need of our critical services.  To learn more, please visit www.juniorblind.org/bbf.

This event is so much fun that we have two Beeper Egg Hunts annually! You can join the fun in Central Valley and in the Bay Area.

Children who are blind or visually impaired have the opportunity to take part in a traditional egg hunt adapted just for them, where specially-designed beeping eggs are placed throughout the grass for children to find by listening for their sound. The beeping eggs are then exchanged for candy-filled plastic eggs. The day is filled with crafts, music, food and fun for everyone!

Please join us for the 2016 Beeper Egg Hunts!

Services

Blind Babies Foundation has been providing critical early intervention and education services to infants and preschoolers who are blind or visually impaired for more than 65 years. Our family-centered services are provided in the home environment and encourage every child’s development to the fullest degree possible with careful attention to their individual abilities and needs. Our Vision Impairment Specialists help more than 560 children each year in 14 central and northern California counties at no cost to families.

"Our son has a visual impairment which put us on a hunt for some sound help and direction. We have been on a medical and emotional roller-coaster and we can wholeheartedly say that having BBF at our side has made this trying time much easier to handle."  - Steve & Jody C. of Lodi, California
 

Why Use Our Services?

The birth of a baby marks the beginning of many challenges for a family. With a baby who is visually impaired, the challenges are more complex. Blind Babies Foundation's early intervention program helps the entire family adjust by:
  • providing parent education
  • providing information -supporting the parent/child relationship
  • connecting the family to resources
  • attending medical visits with families
  • administering visual and developmental assessments
  • referral to other agencies
  • supporting family advocacy skills
  • giving opportunities for families to meet and to learn from one another
