Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments
The Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments is located in Richmond Heights, in the central corridor of St. Louis, Missouri. Our recently renovated facility offers a place of connection for families in our community living with visual impairment or blindness. As founded in 1951 by Delta Gamma alumni from Washington University, DGC continues to provide comprehensive home-based early intervention services for children between birth and three years of age. Our GRADS program supports children as they grow into young adults, providing unique recreational activities and opportunities for social relationships. At DGC, parents also find reassurance and valuable resources through individual and group family support services. Low vision evaluations are available onsite through community partnerships, and vision screenings are provided throughout the community for at-risk populations. Our teachers and therapists work address the complex needs of our clients through a team-based, holistic approach.
