about | the school
by Perkins School for the Blind

Perkins School for the Blind is a world-wide leader in education services for children + young adults who are blind or visually impaired — with multiple disabilities. An international non-governmental organization, we’re infinitely innovating to solve long-standing + emerging problems facing our communities, our students, and our families.

Perkins works in 100 countries to give children access to highly-trained teachers + education. Because we believe every child can learn. 6 in 10 college students with visual impairments don’t obtain a degree. We’re leading the national conversation about college success for kids with disabilities.

1 in 4 people have a disability. We consult with business, education, and health-care to ensure their digital products are accessible to all people. Help us make a difference for children + young adults with complex disabilities and visual impairments. Together we can take a step toward building a more inclusive world.
