Technology aids visually impaired children in Easter egg hunt

Egg-citing Easter for the Visually Impaired: Miami Lighthouse Hosts Annual Beeping Hunt

The Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired recently hosted its annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt at the organization’s Academy Playground. With the assistance 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, emphasizing 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, which can make them feel left out and isolated. The Beeping Easter Egg Hunt allows both visually impaired students and those without disabilities to partake in the festive tradition together using their sense of hearing. In addition to finding eggs, the students also received Easter baskets and had an opportunity to interact with a police robot.

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.
