Technology aids visually impaired children in Easter egg hunt

The Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired recently held its annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt at the organization’s Academy Playground. With the help of the South Florida Police Benevolent Association and Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad, 45 students participated in the event. Each egg had a beeping sound to help visually impaired students find them, highlighting the organization’s mission that “it’s possible to see without sight.”

Children with vision disabilities are often excluded from traditional activities like Easter egg hunts. However, this year’s Beeping Easter Egg Hunt allowed both visually impaired students and those without disabilities to participate together using their sense of hearing. In addition to finding eggs, the students received Easter baskets and interacted with a police robot.

According to Virginia Jacko, President and CEO of the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, this event emphasizes their mission that people with visual impairments can still enjoy life’s pleasures just as much as anyone else. Steadman Stahl, President of the South Florida PBA, expressed pride in sponsoring and supporting this event to ensure that all beeping eggs were fully functional. This collaboration allowed early learners and elementary school students at the Miami Lighthouse Academy to enjoy the excitement of finding Easter eggs.
