Supporting Parents & Early Childhood
Sight Action has a long history of working with children who have a wide range of eye conditions, often with other health conditions.
Stimulating vision and other senses is very important. We work with children and their families to monitor how a baby or child uses their senses. We can then look and link play ideas to encourage certain areas of development. We also loan equipment and toys.
Some parents need emotional support, talking to someone who understands their situation, who can offer practical advice too.
Liaising with other professionals, ensuring the right services or benefits are in place, is a large part of our success in helping families.
Enabling Children to be Independent
Mobility Assessment and Training enables the right skills to be in place for a child to find their way about safely at home, school, or in their communities.
Independent Living Skills – such as making a drink, food preparation, even shopping, all takes a lot of time to build confidence in a sighted world. We help young people to learn the skills they need to enable independence.
