Our qualified rehabilitation specialists have a wealth of experience in supporting children and young people to reach key developmental milestones and make the best use of the sight they have.

This includes supporting your child to develop important practical, social and emotional skills, building their confidence and independence and encouraging them to reach their full potential.

Our expert staff will work with your child to develop the movement and orientation skills they need to get around safely and independently. They will also teach them important skills to help with everyday activities such as getting ready for school or making themselves a sandwich. 

We are part of the Local Offer in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, and work closely with the Special Education Needs Disability teams (SEND) to ensure children and young people with sight loss are supported through school and further education.
