Who We Serve

Our specialists are trained to work with children who have all types of visual impairments and disabilities. Since a formal diagnosis can be difficult to make for visual impairment in infants and toddlers, it is not required. If a child exhibits any sign of visual impairment, we will help conduct assessments and make referrals to professionals who can make a formal diagnosis.

Infant Family Specialist in-home visit working with familyOur Staff

Highly experienced and educated in the field, our Infant & Early Childhood Program Specialists hold a bachelor's or master's degree in early childhood special education, low-incidence disabilities, child development or related fields and have extensive training in visual impairment and assessment. Services are offered in English, Spanish and Tagalog.

Our programs are also closely connected with physicians, therapists, educators and service coordinators to help ensure a comprehensive support network is available to our children and their families.

Service Areas

We serve hundreds of children and their family members in Central and Southern California.

Referral Procedure

A child may be referred to our Infant & Early Childhood Program by a family member, healthcare or blindness professional, Regional Center or school district.
