MIAMI LIGHTHOUSE FOR THE BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED, INC.
November 19, 2012

From my first visit to my latest interaction with the Miami Lighthouse, I am constantly thankful that I was blessed to have an amazing, caring and professional organization such as the Miami Lighthouse helping me with my son. I first found out about the Miami Lighthouse when my son was diagnosed with ocular albinism at 3 months old in 2006, this condition leads to very poor vision at a time when most of a child's learning is done visually. I immediately researched what I had to do by consulting with doctors, hospitals and organizations in the Miami area and they all pointed me in one direction the Miami Lighthouse. The Miami Lighthouse became a one-stop-shop for vision therapy to prevent further vision loss, physical therapy such as gripping and coordination, speech therapy and information on next steps. Developmentally, he was falling behind his cousin who was a few weeks younger until he started therapy and quickly caught up. The Miami Lighthouse provided therapy at home and at the blind babies program for no charge. More importantly, it gave me the peace of mind that my son was in the best hands possible. As he was getting ready to enter school, the Miami Lighthouse helped me find a program for him and guided the school, teachers, staff and parents through the transition. I strongly believe that the Miami Lighthouse has helped him to become the confident and vibrant child he is today. Given their wide arrange of programs, from new born to the elderly, I can honestly say that I plan to be involved with the Miami Lighthouse for a long time.
