Low Vision Resource Center

ROPARD opened the Children’s Low Vision Resource Center in 2001, the first resource center of its kind in Michigan. The Center’s establishment is the outgrowth of the need to assist parents of children who are diagnosed as visually impaired or blind. Services and materials provided at the Center are free of charge. 1

The Children’s Low Vision Resource Center houses books and DVDs for parents. On display are appropriate toys, braille and low vision aids and devices and educational equipment.  The Resource Center will help parents to become the prime facilitators of development for their child by providing them access to the appropriate methods and materials for them to utilize to optimize the development of their child.

Materials for Active Learning such as the Little Room and resonance board; vision stimulation materials, such as a Light Box and a lending library of books, appropriate toys and DVDs are available at the Children’s Low Vision Resource Center.


Families from over 45 foreign countries have visited the Center .


And we are always thrilled to get pictures of “our children”.


The Children’s Low Vision Resource Center is located just East of the Beaumont Hospital Royal Oak campus on the North side of Thirteen Mile Road.4
