Blindness or Visual Impairments

According to the Center for Disease Control, "Vision impairment changes how a child understands and functions in the world. Impaired vision can affect a child's cognitive, emotional, neurological, and physical development by possibly limiting the range of experiences and the kinds of information a child is exposed to."

Early intervention matters. Find out how Early On can help.
