The Penrickton Center for Blind Children is a nonprofit organization in Taylor that serves blind, multi-disabled children, and their families. The organization offers a five-day residential program for children who are legally blind and have at least one additional handicap such as deafness, cerebral palsy, brain damage, developmental delay, or seizures. This program provides the children with developmentally appropriate goals, activities of daily living, field trips, and different forms of therapy. Penrickton Center uses an “active learning” approach that enables the child to play an active role in learning rather than needing to wait for an adult to provide stimulation. Other services include occupational therapy, nursing, and social work. The organization accepts donations in the form of credit card payments, food, essential items, and gift certificates. The Penrickton Center was founded in 1952 as a nursey for blind preschoolers and has changed throughout the years to meet the needs of visually impaired children.
