I came across this on one of my listserv’s and thought it was useful information for some of you.
Hello, my name is Maria Dellapina and I am writing to inform you about an opportunity to enhance the lives of the children we spend our lives advocating for.
I am a mother of an nine-year-old daughter with Down Syndrome and have
struggled through out her life to fit her properly in eyewear. Being an
optician for over 25 years, I was constantly searching for frames that fit
her unique needs. After realizing early on that I was fighting a losing
battle, I took it upon myself and my experience as an optician, to design
and create a special line of frames that dramatically enhances her abilities
to function in eyeglasses.
I am proud to say that recently I was able to partner with a manufacturer
who has developed my design into a workable frame for children with DS and
other special needs. SPECS4US Inc., Superior Precision Eyewear for Children
who are Special, is my vision to bring specially formated frames to enhance
the life of not only my daughter, but the lives of all the special children
struggling with this problem every day.
I have fitted a dozens of children in the frames, and have seen tremendous
improvement in the lives of all of them. Parents are e-mailing and calling
me to express their gratitude for enhancing the quality of their children’s
vision and ultimately their day-to-day lives.
As I am only one mother attempting to advocate for such a large community, I
