The Blind Babies Program provides services for children from birth to age five. Some of the services include; early Intervention, counseling, and parental education. The program assists infants with visual impairments in the areas of cognitive and emotional development, sensory awareness byway of experiential learning. The Blind Babies Program also understands the importance of intergenerational literacy and educates parents and caregivers in the community about the importance of eye health among infants. The primary objective of the Blind Babies Program is to teach infants and provide them with the skills needed to develop higher learning readiness, improved self-sufficiency and fully develop the highest level of physical, mental and social skills. The program focuses on child development by providing students with an Individual Family Support Plan (ISFP) to ensure that they are receiving a comprehensive treatment of care.
The program serves families in the Volusia, Flagler, Putnam and Brevard Counties affected by children with visual impairments. CVI accepts referrals from hospitals, Early Steps, ophthalmologists, pediatricians, neonatal intensive care, Schools, Primary Care instructors, Florida Division of Blind Services and family and community members. If you see a child in need of help, change a life by referring to a child so that they too can experience the journey that life has ahead.
