‘Tis the Season of Accessible Gifts

gifts

The season of giving us upon us! I am frequently asked by parents about gift ideas specifically geared towards children with visual impairments. I decided to get a head start and create a post with all the typical resources I share with families. Please take a look and comment below if you have an additional resource or site to share. I would love to hear what you have heard of that is out there : )
