Early Childhood Conference

May 8-9, 2009

The NFB Jernigan Institute is holding an innovative Beginnings and 
Blueprints Early Childhood Conference in collaboration with the 
National Organization of Parents of Blind Children and various 
resources in the field of early childhood from across the 
mid-Atlantic region.  This two-day conference will bring together 
families of blind children ages birth to seven, early childhood 
providers, teachers, and professionals in order to disseminate the 
NFB's approach to best practices in early childhood education for 
blind children.

Families of blind and low vision children ages birth to seven who 
live in the Mid-Atlantic region are encouraged to attend.  Families 
who live outside of the mid-Atlantic region are also welcome to 
attend if they so desire, but should be aware that some of the 
exhibits and information will be region-specific.  Various 
organizations and programs within this area will be present for 
consultation and to provide presentations to families on what 
resources are available in their state children are encouraged to 
attend with their parents as there will be activities for young blind 
children in mind.

Please complete the online registration form or print the 
registration form (Word) and submit this by April 15, 2009.  This can
