The early years of a child’s life are essential, but particularly so for those with low vision or blindness. It is important that children develop the skills to learn from and understand their environment early on.
By learning strategies and gaining confidence in their abilities, children with low vision or blindness can lay the foundation for ongoing independence through life.
Our non-dog programs can:
- Teach children to navigate their home and outdoor environment safely, and develop mental mapping processes (Orientation & Mobility).
- Enable children to participate in everyday activities that involve fine and gross motor processes (Occupational Therapy).
- Assess and assist with hearing issues in children with deafblindness (Audiology).
- Support children as they transition into kindergarten and primary school (Educational inclusion support consultancy).
