Vision Australia Support for children, adolescents and families.
Every child is unique, and as a parent you know they interact and learn in their own wonderful way. Finding out your child has vision loss can turn your world upside down. You may have all sorts of questions. What does the future hold for them? How will they manage at school? How will this affect our family?
Much of what we learn in life is through watching. So children with vision loss need to gather information about their world in different ways, and parents are their first and favourite teacher.
At Vision Australia we offer your family a personalised approach and innovative solutions tailored to the needs of your child. Vision Australia will be with you and your family throughout your child's life – from birth and first steps, starting school and discovering their talents to graduating, finding after-school jobs and making the most of adulthood.
You will get the support you need to be the expert on your child’s situation. This includes becoming confident in the choices you make for them and proven approaches to help them realise their potential.
In collaboration with you, your Vision Australia support person will access the expertise of our allied health team, professionals and specialist staff to develop strategies that suit your child’s needs. Your child can learn and master important life skills including:
• Daily routines such as mealtime and family outings
• Playing, moving and exploring
• Using language and listening
• Social skills such as sharing and joining in
Your personal support person will meet with you and your child in your home, your closest Vision Australia office or wherever you feel most comfortable. They will work with you so that your child can enjoy a smooth and successful transition to school.
Vision Australia supports people of all ages who are blind or have low vision to live the life they choose. Contact us for more information visionaustralia.org
