The Oklahoma School for the Blind is one of only 54 schools in the US dedicated to serving the blind and visually impaired. It is the only school in Oklahoma that specializes in vision impairment and the blind from pre-school through 12th grade. Tuition for this education program is completely free for the students and their family.
This school not only teaches basic subjects like mathematics, science, english, and other subjects; but they also enable children to becoming independent by teaching them orientation, mobility, braille, independent living skills, and assistive technology.
This is an incredible program that enables students to live with the vision they lack to live independent and successful lives as adults, catering to their needs specifically that most special education programs don't have the technology, knowledge or staff to do so.
The Oklahoma School for the blind operates just like public schools most kids attend; They have wrestling, cheerleading, academic teams, and band.
The school is located in Muskogee, Oklahoma. This is quite a drive for most families, so students have dormitory living quarters to live in throughout the school week and bussed home by the school every weekend; all at no cost to them or their family.
Complete Eye Care's annual Braille Book drive supports this amazing program every year. Your $10 suggested donation will buy one braille book for a student. Our goal is to buy 81 books for all 81 students at this facility from ages Pre-K through 12th grade.
