Help your toddler make friends

Some children find it hard to make friends. It may be more difficult for your child if they miss the cues we use to interact, like facial expressions and body language. You can give them a bit of extra help to get started if they have trouble socialising.

To help them make friends you can:

  • invite children to your home to play
  • do classes and activities, depending on your child’s interest
  • try to find other vision impaired children in your local area
  • take them to a playgroup or nursery

If going to a local playgroup for the first time is daunting, take along a friend or family member to help you feel more confident. All will be welcome.


RSBC’s Family Support Service can help you with:

  • practical advice about your child’s development
  • support when you feel overwhelmed
  • understanding your child’s vision impairment better
  • living as a family and being supportive of each other
