Things you can do to help your vision impaired baby's development

Vision impaired babies learn in the same ways as other babies. Touch, voices and noise replace the visual learning. You can help your baby learn and explore the world around them.

Here are a few ways you can work with your baby over their first 12 months. Make them part of your normal day.


RSBC 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
