OUR MISSION: To prepare children with visual impairments for a life of independence through early intervention, education and family support.
Physical therapy focuses on large motor development, mobility, balance, gross motor skills, posturing, and the appropriate use of adaptive equipment.
If that sounds technical, think of a child's journey from being largely non-mobile to walking and climbing through the playground with peers. Think of a child who has difficulty positioning their body to actively participate in classroom lessons. Equipment and training remove that barrier so that a child who is blind or visually impaired can be a part of the learning.
Physical therapy allows children to develop the motor skills for functional and efficient movement. At Blind Children's Learning Center, physical therapists are experienced in working with children with visual impairments, meaning our children can overcome a visual impairment with tools and considerations unique to their needs.
