Make a Texture Book
Early literacy begins in the first three years of a child’s life. How do you make books engaging when the pictures are not interesting or meaningful to a very young child who’s blind or visually impaired? A texture book is a simple solution and it's easy to make yourself. It might become your child’s favorite book! Learn how to make one HERE .  

Learn from Our Teachers

Spotlight on Sarah Vallese
Sarah is a third- generation Early Intervention Teacher of the Visually Impaired who has been practicing for the past 12 years. 

Sarah has always been drawn to working with young children and their families. When finishing graduate school, she had two internships that changed her life, and she knew that working with little ones was her passion. “I found a new ability to use my creativity to provide rich real-world experiences for children with visual impairments,” explains Sarah.

Sarah is often coaching parents of children with visual impairments on two lessons. "Parents know their child best. They can trust their instincts - they know more than they think they do. They are the MOST important person in their child's life. And two -- their child is capable. Set the bar high. They will show us all the miraculous things that they can do.”

Sarah is leaving A Shared Vision at the end of March to move closer to her husband’s family in New Jersey. We wish her all the best on her next journey! MEET OUR TEAM
