Mike Ehrensberger served as Chairman of the Board at Clovernook Center until April of this year. As the driving force in establishing Clovernook Center’s partnership with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Mike’s leadership created a pediatric low vision program at no cost for children. “One of the things that make our clinic unique is there are no strings attached,” said Mike. Our Pediatric Low Vision Program provides comprehensive low vision evaluations and rehabilitation services to children with visual impairments, ages 3 to 21, which has become a distinctive model in the U.S. It not only addresses literacy but focuses on orientation and mobility, communication, daily life activities, and social participation. The impact has been dramatic for children who can receive assistance with optical devices, assistive technology, and support with educational recommendations. By optimizing visual functioning in the classroom, at home, and in the community, children with visual impairments gain confidence to face any visual challenges they may encounter in their lives.
Clovernook Center named its boardroom after Mike to honor his years as board chairperson. We appreciate Mike’s outstanding contributions and look forward to his continued leadership and support in enriching the lives of people who are blind or have low vision to lead active, productive, and independent lives.Back to News
