Early Intervention Services

Vision Support

WeeTalk’s Early Intervention Vision Specialists are committed to helping babies, toddlers, and families of visually impaired children learn adaptations and accommodations that maximize the use of functional vision while also working toward enhancing other sensory skills.

Our highly trained therapists utilize your child’s daily routines to target learning opportunities that occur naturally so that learning new skills will seem easy.

  • Assist families in choosing appropriate toys and materials
  • Encourage families to teach their child to become as independent as possible during components of daily routines to enhance learning opportunities
WeeTalk knows that the most important piece of Vision Support in Early Intervention is remembering that everything we do during sessions focuses on the entire family and their daily lives. Our Vision Therapists will partner with you, the caregiver, and find ways to incorporate the exercises/strategies throughout your day.
