Our team work closely with other relevant professionals involved in the delivery of supports where a child or young person has a disability in addition to sight loss, where sight loss is a secondary disability or where there are complex needs.
Assessment and Intervention
In addition to functional vision and / or skills based assessments, our staff will provide specialised assessments depending on the needs of the child or young person. These may include:
- Neurological or Cortical Vision Impairment
- Visual Perception
- Visual Field Neglect
- Visual Motor Skills
“Between 60% to 80% of vision impaired children have at least one other impairment or chronic illness.” Dr. Lea Hynarinen Paediatric Ophthalmologist
