Family Vision Flyer

The Family Vision Flyer flyer, which includes an Activity of the Day, is created and shared by the Early Intervention Team from Vision Loss Rehabilitation - British Columbia in partnership with other Shared Vision BC members: PRCVI, BC Blind Sports and Recreation, and Blind Beginnings.

This resource provides families of young children with vision loss and blindness and community partners with suggested activities, games, books, apps and experiences to support development and learning together at home and in the community. The Early Intervention Team has graciously shared these fliers with PRCVI so that they could be made available online. Please see below for an archive of past flyers.
