Infants and Toddlers

Engaging infants and toddlers to thrive and reach developmental milestones.

Early Intervention and family support are vital to every child with visual impairments during the earliest of years. Our team assess the special needs of each child and create an individualized program to reach family goals.

We provide these services in a child’s home and community. Vision Forward believes in creating partnerships with families and caregivers providing educational and emotional support to empower families with the tools they need to support their child’s development.

Our professional staff include teachers of the visually impaired, orientation & mobility specialists, occupational, physical and speech therapists. Because vision impacts all areas of development, therapy professionals have been specifically trained to work with children with vision loss to promote use of functional vision as well as learn strategies to compensate for visual loss.

Functional Vision assessments, and evaluations in the areas of fine/gross motor, mobility, speech and language and sensory integration are completed to identify strengths to build upon while working towards progression of development, play and self-help skills.

When a child cannot receive direct services through Vision Forward we offer consultation and training to professionals, early interventionists and day care providers.
