Welcome to National Organization of Parents of Blind Children (NOPBC)

We specialize in reliable information  and positive attitudes about blindness and the abilities of blind people.

We don't view blindness as a tragedy or as the defining factor in a child's life; instead, we see it as just one of the child's many characteristics.
