Easter Egg Hunt Brings Joy and Inclusion for Visually Impaired Students: Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired Celebrates with the Support of Local Police Department

Technology aids visually impaired children in Easter egg hunt

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

Children with vision disabilities often miss out on traditional activities like Easter egg hunts, so the Beeping Easter Egg Hunt allowed both visually impaired students and those without disabilities to participate in the festive tradition together using their sense of hearing. In addition to the egg hunt, the students received Easter baskets and had the opportunity to interact with a police robot.

“It’s an honor to sponsor and support this event,” said Steadman Stahl, President of the South Florida PBA. “We’re proud to ensure that all beeping eggs were fully functional for our early learners and elementary school students at Miami Lighthouse Academy.” For more information about the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, visit their website at miamilighthouse.org.
