The purpose of the Missouri Statewide Parent Involvement Network (MoSPIN) is to provide a no-cost homebased program for families of children, birth through five years of age, who are visually impaired, including those with multiple disabilities and combined vision and hearing challenges.

MoSPIN provides:

  • Home visits by parent advisors… parents select one or two hour visits,
  • Focus on parents as their child’s first and most important teacher;
  • Information to help parents understand their child’s visual diagnosis and learning characteristics;
  • Parent lessons on vision, communication, motor, hearing or cognition from the national INSITE curriculum;
  • Ongoing support and provision of resources to families.

For additional information regarding the MoSPIN program or activities relating to families of children with combined vision and hearing loss, contact:
