National Registry for Children with Visual Impairments

Babies Count is a national registry of young children, birth to 36 months of age with visual impairments and Wayfinder’s Blind Babies Foundation program was a founding member. This registry works in conjunction with public and private agencies to collect standardized epidemiological and demographic data regarding children, their visual conditions and the systems created to support them and their families. Information from this database has been used to make policy and budget decisions, to expand programs, to drive medical and educational research, and to track the changing face of blindness of children in our country today. Visit¬†www.babiescount.org¬†for information on how to submit data and become a part of this vital national effort!
