Children Services

When your child is declared as being legally blind, help is available through MCB's Children Services program. Children Services social workers have a wide range of information about all aspects of legal blindness in children.

Many parents of children who are blind find it helpful to have a knowledgeable and experienced social worker answer their questions. The MCB Children Services social worker provides a wide range of services geared towards assisting the child to reach his or her full potential.

MCB Children Services social workers can assist families with the following:

  • Respite Care Coordination
  • Socialization/Recreation Program, where available
  • Advocacy in obtaining benefits and services for the child
  • Case Management: Assistance to coordinate needed services
  • Support Counseling to children and their families to assist with problems and concerns related to vision loss
  • Recreation: Limited funding is available for recreation programs to encourage participation in social activities
