Our Mission

AAPVI is a support group for parents of children with visual impairments. We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization. AAPVI is under the umbrella of the National Association for Parent of Visually Impaired Children (NAPVI). The Region 4 NAPVI representative lives in Birmingham and is an active member of our AAPVI group. The support group has members with children who range in age from under one year through senior in high school. Other professionals in the field of blindness and low vision have approached the AAPVI President about becoming members of the support group. Blind professionals working in their chosen fields have approached the AAPVI President about becoming a member. AAPVI turns no one away.

AAPVI 2018 Beeping Easter Egg Hunt on March 17

AAPVI Families and Friends,
It is time for the 2018 AAPVI Beeping Easter Egg Hunt.
The Egg Hunt will be held at Triple S Farms in Wilsonville, AL on Saturday, March 17 from 11:30 AM until 3:00 PM. Lunch will be served first. Then the Egg Hunts begin. The Beeping Eggs are typically hidden multiple times to allow for each age group to hunt the eggs. VI kids, their sighted siblings, and parents are invited to participate. Sighted individuals will be asked to wear a blind fold. After each egg hunt, beeping eggs are traded for a candy-filled egg compliments of the North Shelby Baptist Church.
Please RSVP by Sunday, March 11 by calling/texting 256-503-5568 or send email to Denise Mays. I will need to know the number in your party so we have an accurate head count for lunch.
