In the early 1970’s, Phil and Marcia Mitchell were parents of visually impaired infant, began a search for professional expertise that could provide the early intervention needed to help their daughter develop to their maximum potential. Aware that the early years are the most important learning years in a child’s life, these young parents were motivated out of a great sense of urgency!
