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. This holiday tradition, supported by the South Florida Police Benevolent Association and Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad, saw 45 students participate in the event.

President and CEO Virginia Jacko highlighted the importance of inclusivity for children with vision disabilities, who are often left out of traditional activities like Easter egg hunts. The Beeping Easter Egg Hunt allows both visually impaired students and those without vision disabilities to join in the festive tradition using their sense of hearing.

The South Florida Police Benevolent Association and Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad sponsored and assisted with the event to ensure all the beeping eggs were functional for the students at the Miami Lighthouse Academy. In addition to the egg hunt, students received Easter baskets and had the opportunity to interact with a police robot during the event.
