A local union in Kentucky has created a mini ‘city’ to help prepare visually impaired preschoolers for the big wide world they are starting to enter.
Equipped with miniature traffic lights, curbs, and some of the noises and distractions of a big city, this recreation allows preschoolers to explore in a safe, controlled environment. Those involved say that it’s giving the kids the experience they will need to navigate later in life.
Read more about the project in this article. There’s also a short news video about the venture.
For those with sight loss, we can help. Visit our First Steps After Vision Loss page for more information.
