Perkins School for the Blind
Perkins, the nation's oldest school for the blind, works with individuals who are blind, deafblind, or visually impaired with or without other disabilities. In addition to providing education, Perkins School for the Blind's main aim is to enable children and adults to build productive, meaningful lives despite their disabilities. Perkins' "Infant and Toddler Program" works with babies, infants and toddlers and their families in an empowering and coordinated program of home teaching and on-campus learning. This program's early intervention services prepare the children to enter the Perkins Early Learning Center or a community preschool at age three./p>
Volunteers will work one-on-one with one child for the duration of the year in the "Infant and Toddler Program." In this program, volunteers will assist children up to age three. Working with the children every week, 4Boston volunteers will spend time with them in both classroom and living settings, working with them to improve their gross motor and sensorimotor skills.
