Since 1951, the Delta Gamma Center's mission has been helping children who are blind or visually impaired reach their full potential through family-centered, specialized services, and community support. DGC provides comprehensive programs for children birth though high school and their families including educational, developmental, therapeutic, and recreational services.
Usually taken for granted, 80-90% of learning occurs through vision, so much of learning occurs incidentally through observation of the people, places and actions around us. As a result, children who are blind or visually impaired from birth or shortly thereafter have very unique learning needs.
The Delta Gamma Center teaches parents how to help their children use their limited vision to their maximum potential and to develop compensatory skills by using their other senses. A truly unique organization, DGC provides innovative and life-changing experiences including early intervention services for kids 0-3 and their families; school-age activities such as tandem-cycling, cooking, art, music, rock-climbing, skiing, horseback riding, etc.; and support and training for parents.
