It is part of the National Organization of Parents of Blind Children (NOPOBC), which states:
We specialize in reliable information and positive attitudes about blindness and the abilities of blind people. We don’t view blindness as a tragedy or as the defining factor in a child’s life; instead, we see it as just one of the child’s many characteristics.
