Michigan Parents of Children with Visual Impairments (MPVI)  is a parent organization for families in the state of Michigan with children who are blind or visually impaired.  Our goal is to help families raise their blind and visually impaired children to be successful, fulfilled, productive adults.  We support our families in three ways:  by providing networking opportunities, educational and recreational activities, and advocacy.  Check out our website at www.mpvi.org 

We are an affiliate of the National Association of Parents of Children with Visual Impairments (NAPVI)  www.spedex.com/napvi/

> Kudos to Jeffery and his parents for being actively involved in so many great blindness related skill building programs around the state (NFB, MPVI, Camp-T, MDE-LIO).  
> The Quality Education Team for Students with Visual Impairments (QET) will host it's 3rd Annual Braille-a-Thon on Tuesday June 21st, on the capital lawn in Lansing!  NFB Michigan has always been great supporter of this event.  We hope to see you all there to spread the word about the importance of Braille Literacy!  Attached is an informational flyer in MS Word format.  If you wish to be a Vendor at this event or register a student please use the information on the flyer to contact me.
