Little Bear Sees Foundation

The goal of the foundation is to provide families in need with the information, products and tools to help their children with cortical visual impairment (CVI) learn to see. We believe that the fact that many children are either misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all is tragic and avoidable. We strive to provide as many people as possible with information and tools to improve the lives of children with CVI. FOUNDATION MISSION Our mission is to raise awareness of cortical visual impairment (CVI), to provide parents and health providers with access to essential information and resources for early CVI diagnosis, and tools that may enable children who have CVI to learn to see. We see our purpose to be to give families essential information, support, resources, and hope that until recently was not available and to help parents understand how to organize an action plan for their child that will make a significant difference in that child’s vision and developmental progress. Our focus is on improving outcomes for children with CVI and their families by encouraging early CVI detection, diagnosis, and intervention. Furthermore, we strive to help parents stay abreast on current issues, discoveries, and changes affecting infants and children with CVI and keeping families informed about available services, equipment, and tools.
