OUR MISSION: To prepare children with visual impairments for a life of independence through early intervention, education and family support.
Occupational therapy focuses on sensory processing, fine motor skills, oral motor functioning, and gross motor abilities. Visual impairments can make tracing objects, holding markers, and feeding ones very challenging to a young child. Occupational Therapy gives children a sense of mastery over their bodies, making them more confident and independent at school, at home and in the community.
Early intervention is crucial because 90% of motor development in a child’s first year of life is driven by vision.
