Blind-Low Vision Early Intervention Program
Joining together with families to support child learning
Children with visual impairments are at greater risk of developmental delays and communication challenges. Early intervention helps young children with visual impairment build their capacity to meet development and communication goals.
Our Blind-Low Vision Early Intervention Program team works with families and parents to increase their understanding of their child’s visual impairment. We help build their capacity to advocate for and support their child’s learning from birth to school age.
The program includes the following components:
- In-home appointments
- Early learning and childcare centre consultation
- Professional consultation and collaboration
- Attending ophthalmology appointments with the family
- Written reports, assessments and Family Service Plans
Our Early Childhood Vision Consultants work closely with families, parents and providers to identify priority goals and create accessible environments for the child, including familiar settings such as the home and early learning centres.
