WonderBaby is a veritable encyclopedia of all things parenting, blindness, and visual disability. More than that, there’s an actual person behind the screen, a person who genuinely cares. A mom began the site to focus on vision impairment. She has also amassed a wealth of information related to additional disabilities, exploring common underlying conditions and accompanying complications of blindness or visual disability.

National Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program (NDBEDP) ensures that every person with combined hearing and vision loss has access to modern telecommunication tools and the training necessary to use them. The program, promoted by iCanConnect, provides outreach, assessments, telecommunications technology, and training free of charge to those who meet federal eligibility guidelines.
