Donating to Delta Gamma Center (DGC) provides educational, developmental, therapeutic, and recreational services to children from birth through high school and their families, as they seek to live a life without limits from vision loss.
Usually taken for granted, 80-90% of learning occurs through vision, so much of learning occurs incidentally through observation of the people, places, and actions around us. As a result, children who are blind or visually impaired from birth or shortly thereafter have very unique learning needs and often they have additional disabilities and complex medical needs.
Your support provides:
Early Intervention including educational, therapeutic, development, and recreational services for children from birth through three years old;
Group activities for school-age children to develop independence, fine tune social skills, and engage in the community;
Family support to help caregivers navigate their child’s visual impairment as well as other challenges and needs for resources; and
Vision screening for young children at higher risk of vision problems and/or with limited access to vision services.
