About Us

Mission

The mission of the Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments is to help children who are blind or visually impaired reach their full potential through family-centered, specialized services and community support.


In 1951, a group of Delta Gamma alumni from Washington University started a local organization to serve the needs of young children with visual impairments and blindness. The founders of the Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments set forth on a mission to provide educational services for children in the earliest years, prior to the start of school, with an emphasis on guidance and training for their parents.

Services offered by the Delta Gamma Center include comprehensive early intervention services to address the needs of infants and toddlers who are blind or visually impaired and their families. Services include education, orientation and mobility services, occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy services for children with complex developmental challenges. The Center has recently introduced Low Vision Evaluations to further assist the early intervention team. A broad array of family support services are available as well. The GRADS (Group Recreation and Developmental Support) Program, provides unique opportunities for school age youth to develop friendships, independence and participation in community activities.

The center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Governed by a community – based board of directors, the center is a well established and respected organization in the community.
