Keystone Kids

KBA’s Keystone Kids Program is a community-based instruction program that is specifically designed for children with visual impairments. Keystone Kids offers week-long summer programs, assistive technology, training, and monthly activities.

KBA promotes personal growth and independence for blind and severely visually impaired children through a variety of fun and educational experiences using skills such as orientation and mobility, social skills, and organizational skills.

In 2005, Keystone Kids were the very first group of students who are blind and visually impaired to participate in the Youth Education Series at Disney World in Orlando, FL. In 2010, Keystone Kids returned, providing a new group of students this unique opportunity.

With the support of our local community, KBA is proud to provide “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunities for these spectacular children.
