NFB Early Explorers Program

The NFB Jernigan Institute is pleased to announce the NFB Early Explorers Program. This program is designed to introduce young blind children (ages birth to 7) and their families to the long white cane. Through the program parents will receive the tools, support, and confidence needed to become their child’s first cane travel teacher. Providing children with an early start to independent movement and travel ensures that children will be more confident and curious travelers throughout life. Families participating in the program will receive a free child-sized white cane, Travel Tales (a quarterly e-newsletter), an informational DVD, and so much more!

To learn more about this exciting program, or to register, please visit, e-mail, or call (410) 659-9314, extension 2418.

Help us spread the word about the importance of early movement and cane travel for young blind children by telling the parents and families you encounter about the NFB Early Explorers Program!

“NFB Early Explorers is made possible in part through a grant from the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust”
