Home visits

A child’s initial referral to us may be made very soon after diagnosis. We are particularly aware that at this time parents/carers may be in need of emotional support and reassurance.

As we continue to visit we are able to offer support and provide information regarding visual impairment and education and suggest practical ideas and strategies. 

Babies and toddlers will be invited to join our weekly playgroup at the Lodge Family Centre, which will give parents/carers the opportunity to meet each other and share tips and experiences, providing mutual support.

Some parents or carers choose to make use of our counselling service.
