Providing services to families and children from birth to age 3.
The Infant Class serves children who are blind, visually impaired and multi-disabled, from birth to age three. We encourage parents to contact us as soon as they receive a diagnosis for their child from their doctor or healthcare provider. In fact, we have served infants as young as two months-old!
The Infant Class teaches parents or other caregivers how to motivate and encourage their children — to initiate movement, sit and crawl, overcome fear of noises, and be open to new experiences, including feeding skills! What parents learn can be practiced at home building a critical early bond. Infants and parents usually attend classes one or two times a week in a comfortable, encouraging setting.
